I was wondering if someone might be able to offer advice on sail choice. We are relatively new to the Fireball fleet and want to get some new (probably second hand) sails before the nationals as the ones we got with the boat are a little tired to say the least.

There seem to be a whole array of options so i was hoping someone might be able to shed some light on what would be suitable for us?

We are relatively light weight; helm 10st, crew 12st and i think our mast is Selden Cumulus.

Thanks

Hi Sarah,
Just keep an eye the for sale notice for second hand Norths or P&Bs a lot Pro sailors with selling sail after Europeans.
Both Norths and P&B with fit on your mast and suit your weight.
Call up Norths and P&B they might some seconds sails or Speeds sails.
All are good fireball sail makers and all have tuning guides for sails.

I have sailed my fireball with all 3 sail makers.
