December 8, 2015 “We are taking a hard look at the Saga 48 for Bahamas sailing, which can be purchased with standard sails. Do you have any recommendations or comments about maximizing short-handed sailing performance with the normal rig and six-foot keel? Any recommendations for aymmetricals with this boat for the Bahamas? Plan to use a sock as we do on our Beneteau 461. ”

Standard sails are really just a starting point for any boat. Since there are so many sail size and materials possibilities, the best way to approach an inventory for your Saga 48 is to have a discussion with a Quantum sail consultant to review your preferences, budget, sailing style, long and short range plans, and work from there to provide you with options and recommendations. A modern asymmetrical with a sock is a wonderful choice for short-handed cruising in the Bahamas or anywhere else.
