Do new RS600 sails work with the old Angel masts? I noticed that the Rooster replicas had a bolt rope too large for the old masts, and wondered if this was a problem shared with the official sails. I've tried asking RS directly but they don't seem to check their emails.

Thanks

They are usually pretty helpful on the phone about things. Might be worth giving them a call?

FWIW, RS400 bolt ropes seem to vary in size, ancient ones are definitely bigger than on the later white mains. If the bolt rope is only sewn in at the ends, a good sailmaker might be able to change it relatively cheaply, without risking any ill effects? Don't take my word for it, ask a proper sailmaker!
