South Coast Sailboats
The current sail inventory is as follows:
Recently purchased high performance Dacron main sail (excellent
upgrade with a noticeable improvement in sail shape and power
transfer to the boat).
A smaller main sail we actually use as a storm main (from
a 110 Racing Canoe). This works great in a lot of wind, in that
it is even smaller than the reefed main sail. It probably has
a better sail shape than a reefed main, and therefore works reasonably
well, but again for this to work well you would need at least
10-15 mph winds.
A Catalina 22 Jib this is larger than the 77 sq. ft. working jib
that came with the boat and acts as if it were a 120 jib for the
A small light jib (85) works really well on windy days. This
depowers the sail rig to provide a very comfortable ride without
a lot of heeling over.
A heavy weather jib (75) works really well on really windy
days. This sail is even smaller that the light jib, but it is
made of much thicker material for strong winds and heavy gusts.
Again, this depowers the sail rig to provide a very comfortable
ride without a lot of heeling over.
The Genoa jib (150) works really well in light to moderate
The Spinnaker & spinnaker pole. We don't get to use it
often; therefore we don't often carry it with us, unless we are
planning on using it. Great for larger bodies of water.
