"Oops! wrong button" Cartrage paper but that was a long time ago and it was a bit heavy. One chap I knew used to use rice paper which looked good but was a bit fiddlie

Hi Jimmy,    The sails are made from ordinary computer printing paper,  stuck on the yards with clear nail varnish and curved by pulling the corners (sorry, clews) through tweezers and then put on the yards.       Cheers  Geoff.
