Does anyone have dimensions for Achilles 9m sails and spinnaker pole?
I'm trying to price sails, inc roller headsail and need dimensions.
Spinnaker pole is missing.

Crusader Sails may well be able to tell you sail size as they are pretty knowledgeable about the Achilles
Having said that I bet Daddsie has a spare set knocking about these racing sorts change them every few weeks...lol

Genoa-Luff 10.150M,
Leech 9.900M,
Foot 5.150M,

Main- Luff 9.350M
Leech 9.970M
Foot 2.620M

I would only use as a rough guide, no tension provided, just laid on grass in garden.

Hi Norman
I'm on ferry from Rosslare to Pembroke at the moment. Unfortunately I don't have a car with me so won't be near Swansea. Pity

Deal agreed on. Youngest daughter accompanied me on trip and likes boat so that sealed it!

I'm in need of a spinnaker pole if anyone knows of one for sale.
Hope to get furling sail and gear for headsail but not yet sure if budget will allow so if anyone has a reasonable working jib for sale let me know as current sails are pretty old and baggy.

I'm having engine serviced,, keel soda blasted and epoxy primed, full antifoul before sailing back to Ireland.

Many thanks for all the advice so far everyone.

Norman, the seller gave me some lists from the factory of who boats were sold to, sail numbers etc. I ca forward them to you if you like. Lists are for A24, A9 and Sparta models.

spearhead_027 says:

The "Spearhead Spec" dimensions were taken from a copy of CB's original sail plan and are now at www.spearhead.me.uk/a9m.htm
Note the 9m main is actually shorter on the foot than the 24's (and the same boom was used on both).

Siam9m - welcome and would you like to contribute to the "Achilles 9m sail numbers" thread above left? I've been puzzled by your boat for years!

Ordered new sails from Hyde. They came out to measure the boat for me. They will deliver the sails, fit and check them on the boat. I felt this was the best option. Prices were competitive too.

Furling Head sail - Voyager race spec in Contender Crimpless warp with Foam Luff, UV strip, Tell tales and bag.

Main sail - Voyager race spec in Contender Crimpless warp with Achilles logo, Sail number, 3 reefing points, Tell tales and bag

Both are Tri-Radial

Price inc. discounts & VAT €2585, about Stg £2172
