Posh Bags at the Worlds….. !!





I spotted an alternative style of bags to the conventional that we use.
The bags pops open and closes with a bit of hand pressure. The ‘rib’ on the top that supports the bag is made of batten like material which is fitted in tension.
It’s tidy and suits if you want good vision to the rig tension markings on the mast.
I still prefer the standard Goacher / P&B bags as the stiffness in this Aussie alternative could mean pain in rushed kite stowage and the kicker could hold them closed
Note the branding, Aussie wit!




New Spinnaker Bag Design…..!!

milne spinnaker bags 2I had both a new set of P&B and Goacher spinnaker bags available to me to fit to my new Ovington-Milne.

Custom made stainless hinges by self, the top lip springs both closed and open.

No shock cord or liens required.

The are not restricted by the vang in any way and you can launch a spinnaker from them (although with greater friction when open) while closed. And they are deep.  Plenty of room for a new crunchy spinnaker and also a few water bottles as well.  Weathermax sides, mesh bottoms and carbon re-enforced mylar top skirt for some show and shine.
