General Discussion / ?Bigger Jib for 2003 Legend 306??
« Last post by sadler on Thu 19/Jan/2017 20:15 GMT »
'Amazing Grace' is a Legend 306 built in Portland and launched in April 2003. We have owned her since 2009 and sailed her extensively around the South coast, Scillies, Channel Islands, & Brittany as far as the Loire.
She needs a new jib and our local sailmakers 'Crusader Sails' are suggesting a jib of a slightly ( about 10%) increased size so that her performance is improved, particularly downwind.
Has anyone tried this? Presumably we would need to adjust the fittings on deck ?
We would greatly appreciate anyone's knowledge and experience!

CHRISTMAS / NEW YEAR NEWSLETTER

I hope you are enjoying the Festive Season. Judging by some Facebook entries, good food and booze interspersed with some lovely looking walks seem to be the order of the day ……… enjoy.
My intention to get this Newsletter to you before Christmas Day has clearly all gone wrong and I suppose I should have known better than to have said this is what I intended to do, knowing all that had to be done here at home getting ready for the onslaught of the family. Now I am even later because my computer won’t let me send Group emails !!
There is now an event list for the 2017 season and I show below what is planned so far so don’t say “I didn’t know what was going on” !. I say ‘so far’ deliberately because there will be four events at which there is a friendly ‘ 3 line whip’ for you to attend !  These dates will appear on the LOA website. Other dates however will be more optional and can be found in due course in the LOA East Facebook Group, ‘Leggies’.  The idea being that there will be other ‘official’ events organised for you (see diary below) - but then during the season you, the members, are invited to ask fellow ‘Leggies' to join them with whatever you are up to. For example, if I decide to go to Southwold on the first weekend of July, I shall say so in the ‘Leggies' Group and ask for anyone else to join us and to get into contact. I shall also be monitoring ‘Leggies' and sending emails around to advise who is doing what in case you have no interest in Facebook !!
It has been decided to have a “Get in the Mood’ Saturday Dinner and B&B in February - not a ‘3 line whip’ but obviously we would like as many as possible to attend. Robert Fisher is actually coordinating the weekend so please do look out for his circular in ‘Leggies’ and on email. I must record thanks to Paul Edwards for his help in choosing the restaurant and hotel, also to Paul Valentine for other ideas.
That’s all for now, there will be more during the season, but if you have any comments etc etc please do not hesitate to contact me.
Best Wishes for 2017 and here’s to a great sailing season ……..

Nigel

Ooops
The National Legend Yachts Weekend is on 13-14 May, not mid-week! The Beaulieu BBQ was moved to 29 April to accommodate Legend Yachts as they are in the hands of Haslar Marina.

so long as the new hole in the tank is watertight or more importantly fuel tight and can withstand an inversion; and oh yes; either comes with Type approval with an RCD directive certificate. And your insurance is happy about the modification.

Just saying........ :-\

hi robin. many thanks for your advices. pumping it all out first looks a good idea and then fitting a 150mm inspection hatch after, i was worried about swarf  but see that can be cleaned out easier if a proper inspection hatch is fitted.
 . many thanks for sparking  my enthusiasm back.  regards  barry
