Starwind 22' Mainsail

Hey sailors,
I'm new to the forum and sailing. I bought a 22' swing keel starwind, and I'm looking for a used mainsail or a decent priced new one. I'm in south Carolina, someone please send me in the right direction. 24' x 9' on the foot. Anyone in my area that wants some sailing friends let me know. Thanks for the help!!

Re: starwind 22' mainsail

I have recently acquired a 1983 Starwind 22 and may also be in the market for a jib sail. Would you let me know if you receive any feedback? Also do you have a manual for the Starwind that I can get a copy of? Thanks

Re: Starwind 22' Mainsail

Hey,
I have a working jib for that boat. I think its also called a storm jib. I only use my 150% genoa up front. I don't have the manual but i have done tons of research and could prolly answer any questions.

Re: Starwind 22' Mainsail

The rudder on my boat has a broken clam cleat so it tends to rise up when under sail. Do you have a picture of how the cleat needs to be rigged in order to hold the rudder down? I think a line runs down the stern edge and up the other side of the rudder that allows it to adjusted up or down. I will have to check to see if I have a jib or a genoa for the fore sail. I'll measure it and try to figure it out. Thanks for all your help!!

Google starwind rudder. Look under images and there are a few pictures with rudder lines run. My rudder also kicks up and I haven't figured out how to stop it. I do have a jam cleat up by tiller connection.
