Mainsail For Sale

I have a sale with the following dimension for sale.

The Quantum, Dacron, sail dimensions are:

Luff- 23′

Leech- 24’ 7″

Foot- 9’ 10”

The sail has standard aluminum/alloy headboard for the halyard attachment, 3/8” slides up the mast for easy hauling and durability and it is in great shape. I do not know the age of the sail but I believe it is barely used.  I do not have a sail bag for the sail storage and I do not have the 3 batons needed—but those should be easy enough to obtain. The R19 class logo is not on the sail.  I would like to list the sail at $350 and I will pay for the shipping.

2016 Nationals Results


Congratulations to Charlie Pendleton, Elise Mazareas Nash, and Jim Raisides 2016 Champions.  Click Here or here for Results.  More details coming soon.

Perpetual Awards were as follows:
Cressy – Bob Bernstein
President’s – Bob Bernstein
Don Quixote – Mike Hebert
Novice – Gretchen Hartke
Travel – Zane Yoder
Robert Jensen Masters – Bob Bernstein
Corinthian Sailers (under 25 yo) – not awarded
Fleet Championship – Chicago

Zane won the Travel Trophy, who told the tale of breaking down 130 miles from Montrose with broken springs and more and were rescued by a trailer specialist after a huge wait.  Rumor has it that his return drive was also challenging!

Bob Bernstein won the Presidents Trophy – for leading the hosting of 2016 Nationals on top of his long and storied contributions and participation in the class.  Click here for the full story.

Congratulations also to the Chicago Corinthian YC for putting on a first class regatta.  Everybody had a great time.
