First sailing photos of low cost sails for Storerboats

After a week or so of bad sailing weather, Daniel in Uruguay got out on the water in Piriapolis harbour to try out his new sail from ReallySimpleSails.com in the Philippines.

Setting up a recovery line to right a leeboard OzRacer or Goose sailboat
