Windos in main sail

Post by Captain_frog »

Does anyone know the dimensions and the position of the small window in main sail (the window nest to the mast which allows a look on the genoa tell-tale?

Is it as practical as it is supposed to be?
Is the normal window (the big one next to the foot leech) also nice to have? I do not have any on my present sail and I do not really miss it (but maybe I just do not know what I am missing).

Any help will be great.

The small Window is for watching how close hauled the genoa is to the spreader. The big Window is for better view of other boats, specially useful in strong winds with more heel...
