Hello all,

I was looking through the scans I have of the Westsail Owners and Construction manuals and thought it might be useful to create a post with the various original and new sail dimensions and information. I would like information about any sail folks have found to work well!

Luff, leech, foot, area, material weight/type, notes from diagram or experience, designer.

If you have drawings or data for sails with question marks, please post the info or email it to me so that I may add it to the list. In addition, I have no diagrams for the W28, W39, W42, or W43. If you have sail information for those boats, please send it to me!

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
