Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: leech length on mizzen ballooner on 54



When we sailmakers supply a sock (aka spinnaker sleeve), we base the length on the leech, not the luff. You want to be able to easily reach the clew and it's okay to have some of the sail protruding from the sock.

Wolfgang gave you the number. I mistakenly said leech when I should have said luff. Wolfgang has the luff at 11,65m. 12.0 meter is perfect for your sock.
