Mainsail problems


We managed to lose a batten during our trip to Anglesey so I brought the main sail home to measure up for a new one.

At the same time, I’m thinking of how we can fly our ensign. I am favouring attaching it between gaff end and an eye part way down the leach of the main sail.

I also have to figure out how I can make the out haul adjustable, as this would make sailing in heavier winds more manageable and save “ragging” the main (which is what contributed to the loss of the batten).
