Sew it yourself! Venture 17 Main Sail Kit lets you make your own mainsail. This crosscut kit is made from 5.4oz white Dacron® using the designer's plans and features one row of reef points, a boltrope on both the luff and foot, slugs on the luff, leechline, and standard battens. 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. All other supplies to build your sail are included; all you need are scissors and a sewing machine!

Each Sail Kit comes with complete written instructions.
