Grieving for our Gennacker.

Furiends I have sad news. You may remember back in September we had our gennacker up (after a small sail repair) but it gave way and ripped nearly in two! I wrote about it here.

The humans finally got around to taking it to the very talented sail-maker here, and he said he would try and work his magic. After having a good look at it though, he has said the sail is just too old and the material is ruined. Unfortunately it can’t be saved.

We’re not sure what we’re going to do yet about getting a replacement. We loved that sail so much and it’s purrfect for sailing in the Mediterranean.


Noccy in her element

Goodbye dear Gennacker.

Bisous, Bailey


  1. That will be a big dollar replacement, sorry Bailey.


  2. goodness that title scared me for a moment! Sorry about the sail and having to pay the $ to replace it.


  3. 😦

    Oh such a shame hope u can get another one or how will u sail


  5. Time for a new gennacker huh? I’m sure that’s not a CHEAP replacement but purrrrhaps someone knows of a slightly used one????

    Hugs, Sammy


  6. Oh dear! Yes perhaps a second hand one, which is still really nice! One you would like! Love Monty

    Sorry for your loss, dear brofur. Don’t forget to save a piece to frame as a memento. We are sure replacing that is an expensive proposition. Hope it doesn’t interfere with any of your traveling/sailing plans. XOCK from your brofur and sisfurs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Oh Bailey I’m so sorry. It was such a beautiful one. But I think getting a piece of it and framing it is a great idea. I sure hope that this doesn’t interfere with you summer sailing plans. You live on such a beautiful sail boat.


  9. Bailey, that is too bad about your gennacker. 😦


  10. Sorry, dude – but at least the boat still floats!!


  11. Sorry about your gennacker 😦


  12. RIP, gennacker. It served you well, Bailey.


  13. Oh, what a shame! It was a beautiful sail. You’ll help find another, Bailey! I know you will. Pat


  14. That is bad news, Bailey. Hope they can get another one soon – so you can continue sailing.


  15. The Swiss Cats says:

    Too bad ! Purrs


  16. We have a symmetrical spinnaker on Take It Easy – our most often used sail! Like your gennacker it’s getting on a bit… Pricey but essential!


I'd love to hear what you think....
