Several Megabyte sailors have expressed concern that they can no longer replace their Mark I sail. Since many of you are sailing with the original sail that is ten years old or older, we understand.
Zim Sailing has sold out of their inventory. Evolution Sails, the Mark I sailmaker, was not making the sail anymore and are also sold out. However, after a conversation the sailmaker, they are willing to make a batch of at least ten new sails for the class. The price will be $640 for a new sail, battens and a roll cover. Sail numbers and shipping will be an additional cost.
This is a great opportunity to update your sail and your sailing performance. Jim is willing to keep a few of these sails in inventory but needs commitments on at least 7 sails. Please e-mail him if you have an interest in ordering a new sail. The price reflects at least a 20% discount, so do not delay! Once he gets the needed quantity he will request a 50% deposit and make the order.
