HotSailsMaui goes full retro

... and not like Sailworks Retro, either.

The new SummerFreak. Straight back to 1974. http://www.hotsailsmaui.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=4112&action=new

Rigging specs? 465/240. Pretty much the opposite of their new foil sails which are high aspect.

Edit: Found my "when I win the lottery" foil sail: single cam SpeedFreak: http://www.hotsailsmaui.com/sail.php?uid=21 That would be lovely to sail in the summer time.

I wonder if that sail is really just a triangle sail or they did some seam shaping magic. Apparently they don't have any for sale yet - no prices listed on their web page.

There is no off season.

I think it's a semi-custom thing. Been around a while but not exactly anything you'd normally be hunting for: http://www.hotsailsmaui.com/blog/category/products/summerfreak/ I'm sure there's a bit of magic as there is some loose fabric by the mast and Jeff Henderson is too much a perfectionist to ship anything less (judging by his kid's rigs we used).

Retro is in these days. Here is the new high speed bullet train Elon Musk is working on.

There is no off season.
