Scamp SØSYG Sail# 460 launched!

Post by bei.beckers »

Hi guys,

on Sunday 31st June I launched my Scamp finally. I'm so happy, you can't imagine!

I don't have the "original" sail due to the shipping & taxes for sails from USA to Germany, sadly...

The tests were on a small lake with 2-3 Bft under full sail w/o water ballast, nearly no waves.

I discovered a tacking angle of nealy exact 100°. Is that OK for a Scamp?
Please share your experiance!

best, Martin

She looks fantastic, Martin!

The colours look just like #1... can't beat that combination!!!

I think 100 degrees of tacking angle is about my average, too. There's usually some current in my sailing waters (I hope to sail her on a lake this summer, just for fun), so every tack is different, smaller one way, bigger going the other ... some days I can get a series that are almost 90, and then there are days I can't even get 110.

All the best in your adventures with her,
Dale

Hi Dale,

thanks for this information!

And yes, I admit I was inspired from #1's beautiful color scheme :oops:
But i tried so many vaiations that i finally decided to go with this classic look. I love it!

My son keeps on asking when i do the tent.... He's looking forward out adventures, too!

Best, Martin
