I have owned this sail from new. It is well used with one panel (2nd from bottom ) professionally repaired and replaced. It also has a tear in the 3rd from bottom panel, which has been repaired with sail tape. Significant time of it's life spent on the Melville sandbar discussing life and other things. This is still a very grunty sail for anyone chasing a cheap Pryde race sail with plenty of life and speed left in it.
