Learn how Precision Sails defines their Rig Spec measurements and Dimensions. This blog will help you to understand how Precision Sails labels sailboat rig specifications. If you need a replacement or new mainsail and /or headsail you will need to measure your sailboat’s rigging, sails, and rigs. One thing we tell sailors here at Precision Sails is “the effort you put into measuring really does translate into the quality of sail you get.” If quality measurements are given to designers, it allows them to create an excellent performing sail.
For anyone doing an ocean crossing, serious offshore sailing, or are the type of sailor that likes to be out in any condition, we recommend having one in your sail inventory. We recommend this because most sailors only have one mainsail on board. A trysail is there to make sure that your mainsail does not take on any unnecessary damage and means you are able to confidently sail in heavier weather conditions. This blog explores the benefits of a trysail and why trysails are built to withstand more extreme conditions.
