Hi Tom:

I just ordered new Wayfarer sails from North Sails in
Ontario. With the Canadian Exchange, it was a very good deal. Their web site is: http://www.northsailsod.com/order/index.html

They do not list Wayfarer as one of their one design classes, but they have been making Wayfarer sails for a long time and make a very good product. I have called this oversight to their attention, but the omission obviously has not yet been corrected.

Kent Sails in
Harrison Township, Michigan has been in business for a long time. They used to make a lot of Wayfarer sails, but I don't know of anyone who has bought from the recently. This, of course, does not necessarily mean it is not a good source.

For measurement specifications, I suggest you contact our national measurer, Joe Schnur:
eschnur@earthlink.net. He undoubtedly could give you the specifications.

Don Healy used to own Avon Sailboats back in the 1960s, I believe. His name is inscribed on the perpetual Wayfarer National Championship trophy at least 2 or 3 times. He made a very good boat.

Hope this info is helpful.

Dear Mike,  I own Wayfarer 1393, a 1966 Wayfarer built near
by Don Heeley (sp?).  The original sails are just about shot.
Where can I get specifications for a new set of sails?  I would like to
send them out to several sailmakers on bid.  Also, what have you heard
about Kent Sails in
Harrison Township, Michigan?  Any help you could
offer would be much appreciated.  In advance, I thank you.  Tom
