The latter two have valid places and roles in our lives, but that's another discussion. Smile

Bottom line: give hot pink and chartreuse Northwave sails a wide berth and we'll all be safer (and I'll have more fun). Very Happy


This year my faithful go-to '93 4.7 NW Trilite gave up the ghost and became the latest casualty of the war. So I harvested yet another sail from my vast (very vast) arsenal of weapons in the garage and found a pink '93 4.7 NW Trilite, perhaps it was used by the almighty himself? I notice river people tend to give me plenty of ROW now.... especially since the moss is growing so thick in the window.

Odd.
Someone told me you were sailing one of my old NWs and had removed the label that had my name on it.
HOWEVER ... I've never owned a Trilite, and my first NWs were made well after Y2k.

I'm riding one of your old Featherlights. But Pink an Green have always been my colors.
In fact, it matches my Pink Open Ocean nicely. Not a bad sail either.

I'm surprised at that, since Featherlights are designed to be rigged bigger and flatter than most sails, particularly their Surflites, for extended upper range and speed, as opposed to the soulful swell-riding style your videos depict. But if it works for your purposes, that's what counts.

Wow, so many Gorge sailors had a batch of these Trilites at one time or another. Got my first quiver at the swap in '97 and never looked back. The power can't be beat when rigged loose with the single cam. Great sail for wicked laydown jibes, nobody wants to get into my blind spot for fear of being skewered for dinner.
