New Sails

North Sails was right next door to Southern Spars and they often work closely together on many racing and cruising rigs. These people are not just sail makers or riggers. They are sailors. Well known sailors who actually use their own equipment. For Mai Tai's sail inventory, Brett Gray from North Sails came out sailing so he could understand the boat and the rig to come up with the right sail combination. During our interview with him we discuss:
•Sail shape and design
•Different materials
•Storm sails
•Roller reefing vs hank-on
•In-boom roller reefing
