Last fall I broke 2 chinook plastic collars while out on the water which made for some interesting sailing prior to my figuring out what the problem was - the collars were not that old but in fairness ...

I purchased a 12 M formula sail with 100% carbon mast - I think the op is at the sweet spot. The 9.5m lion is an awesome sail that I end up sailing all the time in our conditions. The SLW would be v ...
