New Severne Kit

Severne has uploaded details of most of the 2013 equipment onto its site.  These guys continue to improve and innovate.  The race sails are only due for release in December but everything else seems to be there.  The (non-racing) sails which are of interest to us here in Langebaan are Blade, Gator, NCX, and Turbo.  Each of these sails looks stunning and I look forward to seeing them on the water.

The new Red Line rdm masts are also out and to my delight appear to be the lightest rdm's on the market.  I thought that North had cracked it with the Aero Platinum mast but Severne leads on weight.  Fantastic!  Severne seems really serious about becoming a one stop, quality shop for all sail and rig components.  Their carbon booms have been re-designed and now incorporate new ergonomic shapes and a cleaver "lock jaw front end".  They have also improved their excellent Grenade carbon wave extension.  All most impressive.

Talk to you soon
