DF65 Rigs and Sails - Buyers Guide
Rig kits & sails are sold separately
Tools required: Sharp scissors and glue.
Rigs kits: Include with all items required including booms, mast, fittings, cord & bowsies and fit all versions of the DF65 yachts.
Rigs part built: As the rig kit but we construct the main/jib booms & part build the mast (as the A rig kit is supplied with the yacht package), ready for you to slot together.
Rig/sail options: The DF65 yacht package is supplied with the "A" rig/sails and class rules allow for a further 3 rigs/sails so as to be able to sail in different wind conditions. The sail area size decreases from "A+ to C" (these figures are estimates & depend on local conditions). A+: light winds (up-to 10mph) A: steady winds (up-to 15mph) B: reasonable blow (up-to 22mph) C: for a good blow.
Sails: We give you the choice of Joysway sails and Sochsail. All the sails are made from Mylar cloth of different weights, corner reinforcements and battens.
Bespoke sails: We only supply plan sails without numbers applied (just a logistic and storage issue). For sails with the option of coloured itemising & numbers attached we recommend contacting one of the following sail makers - Links: Sochsails - Catsails - Housemartin Sails - Graphite Sails
