Hi Robert 
 
I have checked with James and your product is safely on its way and should be with you soon. It hasnt come from Canada its something to do with the couriers system. 
 
Regards
Nigel

Nigel. I ordered some Speedsix Sail using your discount code. It appears to be coming from Canada! Tracking not working - might it be delivered before The Worlds, would you think?

Thank you very much everybody for your suggestions. They were very helpful and I now have a clew strap that slides.

McLube is a good product but not salt water resistant so if you want a lube for all waters then use SpeedSix Sail its £10.95 a can and with code ROLFE17 you can get a discount.

McLube is a dry lubricant that works great!
 
Also, I believe one is allowed to use shockcord to help the outhaul go out.

Rather than using WD40 which is still basically oil and dirty. Teflon lubricant as cyclists now use on bike chains is a better alternative for lubricating any boat parts.

I found it slides much better after applying WD40 Silicone lubricant.

Are we allowed to use a rooster flew strap as it is dynema webbing which slips better.

I am having trouble getting the outhaul to work properly because the clew strap does not slide along the boom. Any ideas please?
