Default Broken code red batten

Don't do this:

Let the downhall off a little bit to enable you to pop the battens off

Notice that the sail is rotated the wrong way to give access to the cambers

Rotate the sail

Snap

Second batten up from foot snapped

Will any 8mm carbon batten work as a replacement / do Severne provide spares.

The only spares I have are from an old Gun Mega Race and they have a variable diameter and look very different to the broken one I took out.

I wouldn't mind but it was a wasted day altogether, rigged up, wind dropped, derigged and snapped a batten - what a bummer.
