Fabrication details of the Mach 6.5 mainsail
Close up on Mach 6.5
The batten pockets are enhanced by an anti-chafe reinforced in monofilm. This isotropic material, also stabilizes batten's horizontal load.
The batten tension is carried out in a plastic fitting batten end.
To save weight, the sails layout of one design boats are very neat. This work is made possible by our knowledge of the Mach 650 and of our sail design software "Sailpack".
