Sew it yourself! Vagabond 17 Main Sail Kit lets you make your own mainsail. This crosscut kit is made from 4.93 oz. Newport LA Dacron® using the designer's plans and features one row of reef points, standard battens, a boltrope on both the luff & foot, and leechline. Computer plotted with seaming and hem lines plotted right on the cloth, this sail kit can be made on a home sewing machine. All panels and patches are computer cut and ready for basting and sewing. Complete instructions and support from Sailrite means there is no guess work!

Construction requires a #1 Spur Die Set for grommet installation (sold separately). All other supplies to build your sail are included; all you need are scissors and a sewing machine!
