5. Ex-team Rider Sails

These can be a good option to go for, normally you can snap up a bargain and a whole quiver of matching sails, masts and booms whilst you are at it. It’s a good habit to get into, turning over your gear on an annual basis, it keeps it fresh and a high re-sale value. If you build a good relationship with a team rider for a brand you like then it is a good way to secure an annual turnover of gear, maybe you can be cheeky and tell him/her in advance to take care of ‘your’ gear. If you buy a sail from any kind of team or pro rider be sure of one thing, that there isn’t anything hidden under those sponsor stickers. Normally if the sticker is in an unusual place it is a bit of a give away. Damage to a sail is not the end of the world, they are cheap to fix, but it does give you a good bargaining tool.
