Think some posters are plain thick !!!
Original poster didnt say his sail measured big ; he did not criticise his( or any other sail for that matter). He pointed out ,quite rightly, that there are discreprencies in measuring AREA of sails acrross manufacturers...(and sometimes within ).This is a fact....full stop...Why the advice about masts ???? Whats that got to do with AREA. I have a Gaastra 7.5 GTX; in size terms it equates to an 8.0 in other manufacturers (or other years perhaps) Its something we learn to deal with by using sails but there should be more uniformity in measurements.
Poster no.19 ; are you poster 10 ?? If not try and be original...
There should be more objectivity in our sport...Fact.
