Fitting a windrush 14 sail on a 12


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have recently purchased my first surf cat a windrush 12, it is in need of a new sail. I just wanted to know if a windrush 14 sail will fit the 12 ? Also can anyone tell me what size ropes I should be running eg trampoline, halyard rope ??

You will find that a main sail off a hobie 14 is near identical to the windy 12 except it is about 200mm longer on the luff. A simple repair for your local sail maker. Trampoline rope 5-6mm  will work fine, similar with halyard. The bolt rope ie the rope inside the front of the sail is 6 mm, don't go too soft or it will zipper out. 

If the main sheet is old it will be either 10 or 12 mm which is way too thick for the newer ropes today. I use 8mm on my 14 windy with no problem at all.
