Technora sail

Postby nev » Wed Nov 13, 2013 11:39 pm

I have been asked by a RW convert-to-be if the Technora sail makes any difference.

Any views?

What felix said when I collected mine in 2010 was that the extra sail tension that they could achieve with Technora sails meant the ribs could be set lower to obtain the same pitch moment...

What you need to say is; What does it matter as long as it looks sexier?
