And of course, that also meant a fresh suit of sails. Aboard Ocean Watch, we'd commissioned our old friend Carol Hasse to build us a bulletproof inventory at her Port Townsend Sails loft in Washington State. It was, we reckoned, one of the best decisions we'd made, and Gammon had seconded that opinion during his leg aboard. His revamped cruiser, it was decided, would also fly Hasse sails. In this department, no stone was left unturned, and Hasse's talented team got to work on a new mainsail, storm trysail, staysail, storm staysail, 110 percent jib and an asymmetric spinnaker. Heck, drawing inspiration from a client who owned a Nor'Sea 27, and knowing Gammon would likely find some breezeless high-pressure zones on the transatlantic trip, Hasse even fashioned a light-air main.
