windmills Maud Foster loses a sail in high winds

Over the weekend of 8-9th November, strong winds occurred, and unfortunately one of the sails at Maud Foster windmill in Boston was blown off, and fell through the roof of a neighbouring building.

Maud Foster is a working mill, with 5 sails which normally give it more power than a 4 sailed mill, but the loss of one sail shows the shortcomings - until it is replaced the mill cannot work by wind since the remaining sails are out of balance.
