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 SC.

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 air.

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.
