Paul Hobson of North sails has contacted the class regarding the availability of heavily discounted sails from their loft (see email below).

For your information, the following full prices are displayed on their website:

Mainsail 488 + VAT + Delivery

Genoa 245 + VAT + Delivery

Spinnaker 350 + VAT + Delivery

Currently we have no further information, in particular if the suits can be split. But if you are interested in, for example, a genoa alone, someone else may be interested in a main and spinnaker. This forum may be a good place to find your "someone else".

From Paul Hobson:

The reason for writing is that we have 10 suits of Hornet sails in stock to the same design that won the 2003 Nationals. We built them when Rob Larke worked for us with the intension that he would be campaigning in the fleet for another couple of seasons.

Unfortunately Rob has left the company and we do not have anyone at the moment to take over sailing Hornets.

We would very much like to move these sails on. and will be offering them at a 50% discount. The question is could we put this on your web site under the For Sale section.

we will be loosing money at this price but just want them to be moved on.

If you have any other ideas they would be very welcome. Is there any chance you could send this e-mail to your members, it is a very good deal for someone.

I look forward to your reply

Kind Regards

Paul Hobson
