Coach,

Do you have a low cost sail repair available near your club? I can check out my shed for some old EZZY Cheetahs in that sail size, but I think most have a few taped patches. So they are not "like new".

Windward1,
I have a very good sail repair guy I use for the club & the Aquatic Center where I teach. Not near the club, but close enough.

coachg,

I have a 2003 Windwing Synthesis 7.0 with one damaged monofilm panel that you can have for the price of shipping if you want it. The sail is a quite light and a strong performer. It is definitely worthy of a resurrection. Send me a PM if interested.

Perhaps at least part of the "market" change is a "marketplace" change: specifically a change to Facebook's "Marketplace." I've noticed in my Iowa area regarding other kinds of used items a significant drop off in the number of listings on Craigslist compared with what is available on FB Marketplace.

Hi Coach,

Here is what I found in my shed regarding large sails:

1. A 7.0 Ezzy Cheetah with a blown panel, 2nd from the bottom.
2. A 6.1 Ezzy Elite missing all of its full length battens.
3. A 7.0 Ezzy Cheetah with a rip in an upper panel and taped other panels.
4. A 6.5 Ezzy Cheetah with some tears and tape.
5. A 7.0 Ezzy Cheetah with a vertical rip near its clew.

If these are of any use to your club, they are free. I would need to arrange a trip up to Sacramento to transfer them to you.

There is a limit to file attachments, but Some Pics below:
