RE: Code Red - Broken batten removal
Broken battens!!! - What a nightmare it can be to fix or replace, and all you want to do is just keep sailing.
We have changed batten supplier for the 2007 Severne sails and the quality and building strength is a lot better. Under the testing we don't have any reports on broken battens.
For sure if you wipe out into the sail at 40kts speed - you might find a broken batten from the impact. But under normal use we would be surprised to see any broken battens for 2007.
