    I have recieved a query on any experiences from members on increasing the sail size on a Nauticat 39, but trying to avoid a spinnaker, any views. 


    I would like a No,1 genoa for my 331.  Do we have any good discount arrangements in the group purchase scheme.


    Not yet – but I am trying to negotiate a range of discounts for Nauticat Association members – will post on here when they land.

    Alan – there were some members discounts for specific items – can you post them up here ?


    When I  get all the info from Richard B during April I will be providing an update of the current discounts and suppliers. Alan


    Just as a follow up to Alan’s original post, as a Nc39 owner which was built in 1994.

    My sails were made by Peter Saunders who is based in Lymington and purchased just after I bought her in 2010. The original North Sails from 1994 were not too good.

    My main is a fully batten sail in the Vektran material and has three reefing points.

    The Genoa is sized at 135%, again in Veltran material on a Furlex 300S roller reefing system.

    For heavier weather I also carry a 90% jib again in Vektran material.

    For light winds there is a Cruising Chute which a previous owner had purchased from Diamond Sails. Not used.

    I have spoken to another Nc39 owner who has a 150% Genoa and in mast reefing on the Main sail. So as with most Nauticat yachts there are quite a few differences between the same model.

    My experience during the last three years is that my main sail is very powerful and I have not had problems putting in or taking out reefs while sailing. The genoa is also very flexible either fully unrolled or with a few rolls in heavier weather. Not used the jib sail or the cruising chute!!

    The 4JH2-E Yanmar at 50hp is excellent.
