Last Wed we had ACE out is 25+ knots and lost the bottom batten, and sail flogged the leech just above where the batten was:
|Leech is ripped about 2ft|
|2nd batten from the top will need a new batten pocket|
|This is the top full batten|
Will need some repairs
We took out the battens and will transfer them to the dacron main to sail ACE tomorrow night.
I will have to get some batten stock tomorrow.
