Which sails for ice/snow sailing?

Post by Packpowd » Thu, 03 Dec 1998 04:00:00


Does anyone know what the sail situation is for sub-zero sailing?  I have heard
that some sails work and some shred.

Thanks for any help,

Bob

I used to have this concern, but I've never had a problem with monofilm at all
in 3 years of ice sailing.  I've even had wet water freeze on the sail and
shaken heavy wet snow off the sail many times.  Salt water has got to be much
worse then cold air I'm sure.

Don't let the cold weather and hard water stop your sailing. Just change
boards!
