Seldén's new Dinghy Spars Choice and Care Guide © Seldén Masts

Seldén Masts Ltd is delighted to announce that all their after-market dinghy masts will now include a FREE guide on dinghy spar choice and care.

The 16-page A5 booklet goes into detail on how dinghy spars are manufactured, how this affects consistency and what effects this will have on sailing performance. This full colour guide also covers the processes for both aluminium and carbon spars.

"Our decision to produce this informative resource for dinghy sailors is that a rig should be chosen with the utmost care in order the get the most from the conditions. There are many uncontrollable factors like wind, waves and current and a sailor can use these to his or her advantage, but the better the precision of equipment, the better the performance and feel", Steve Norbury, Seldén's Managing Director explains.

A handy check list on the Dos and Don'ts of taking care of spars is also included, ensuring that the new mast will last for many years. Coming complete with its own waterproof resealable bag, this must have guide will be an essential accompaniment throughout the sailing season.

The Dinghy Spars Choice and Care Guide will also soon be available in PDF format as a download from
