Default RE: Why code red sails aren't balanced simetrically?

Hi Danilo,

You might want to closely inspect the sails, particularly with regard to the batten pockets. If the construction (fabric plys, stitching, gluing, etc.) of the sail on both sides is not symmetrical, it can favor one side over the other. I don't know if this is the case with your SSRs, but some sails out there incorporate less expensive construction techniques to save cost or weight. It is my thought that price point recreational sails are the most likely candidates for this type of simplified construction approach.
