|The 4 Steps to Buying New Sails|
LET'S LEARN A LITTLE ABOUT SAILS,
AND THE SAIL SHOPPING EXPERIENCE!
For technical questions about sails, please email to: email@example.com
Over the many years we have been selling MacGregor boats, and replacement sails for them, we have realized that few things are as confusing, and sometimes frustrating, as the sail shopping process. Bad information is rampant, and even competent well meaning sailmakers often give information that is confusing and not helpful, simply because they do not know the unique characteristics of your boat, or do not pay enough attention to how you want to use it. We have sold over 1000 MacGregor boats, and even more custom sails, to sailors who use their boats in every type of sailing conditions, NO ONE has more experience or expertise than we do.
Before you jump ahead to the specific pricing and descriptions of the sails we offer, please take some time to read through our informational pages that will help you make an informed decision and, in the process, probably learn a little!
We have broken this up into a 4 step process that should help you work through the decision process.
STEP 1: DO I NEED NEW SAILS AT ALL, AND WHAT WILL I GAIN IF I DO BUY THEM?
STEP2: LEARN SOME SAIL VOCABULARY, IT'S HARD TO MAKE A GOOD DECISION IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING.
STEP3: DECIDE WHAT HEADSAIL TO BUY, JIB OR GENOA OR SPINNAKER.
WHAT SIZE HEADSAIL IS BEST FOR ME. JIB OR GENOA? ROLLER FURLING OR NOT?
DO I WANT TO ADD A SPINNAKER TO MY INVENTORY?
STEP 4: SELECT WHAT QUALITY GRADE IS RIGHT FOR YOU.
ECONOMY REPLACEMENT SAILS.
COASTAL CRUISING SAILS.
CUSTOM PERFORMANCE SAILS.
