Severne Turbo sails

Post by Sailrepair » Tue Nov 26, 2019 3:42 pm

I am selling my Severne turbos - 6.5, 7.5 and 8.6 all 2019 and in good condition. £350, £375 and £395 respectively.

Things of note - the 6.5 fits on a 430 rdm mast. The 7.5 goes on a 460 with a boom length of just 195 while the 8.6 is probably the biggest sail you can fit on a 460 mast. These sails are great for blasting but also the best sails for wind foiling - very light, still rotates nicely even with reduced downhaul.

Your sail looks a lot less downhaul than I use on Turbo (2 cam) 7.5m. I watched the rigging video (4Boards?) which has more floppy leech than I am used to, so glad I did. If I use 'usual' floppiness the sail is not stable and a cam pops off, so floppy is right on my mast. Then a very goodsailor with excellent technical knowledge said I needed even more downhaul (t was very windy for 7.5m), and yes the already very good sail got even better and I use that setting even on light days. Good low end, massive wind range, light in hands and gybes well - best big sail I ever had. On shore leech looks way floppier than yours, more like a race sail. I wondered on your experience.

Are you talking about foiling or blasting with a fin? I only use them for foiling so my main concern is with the leading edge and I like the leech quite tight. The twist profile on the sails changed for 2019. They got tighter at the top batten but the moderate looseness goes further down the leech. The twist profile is adapted from the Mach 2 race sails. I have had 2017, 2018, 2019 and now 2020 Turbos.

I used the 2020 8.6 for the first time today and I could have done with another 1cm of downhaul.

I find the Turbos more powerful than the over drives which are more top end orientated.

I have never had the cams pop off.

Only fin sailing and not a Severne mast so may be why one cam pops if not lots of downhaul.

Maybe try adding a spacer or two on the cam that pops off.

Went to add spacer and found tip of batten was broken. I found an old batten from another make and luff-end feels lightly more flexible than Severne one, but draft seems to set slightly less deep than how I remember old one, which seems wrong to me. Only flipped sail on land and seems fine so will see how it sails some time.
