Racing sails

Ultimate racing sails are produced after detailed research and development, both on and off the water. Our design and technology programme is second to none and innovative sail development has been our foundation.

 

Every sail is bespoke to your own boat, rig and crew. We listen to your ideas and discuss all the options available before agreeing the final design and specification. That interaction is the key to our enviable track record of designing and delivering the most successful racing sails.

 

We offer no limitations on design and every Racing Sail we produce is suited your exact requirements using highly sophisticated software tools and drawing from a database of 15,000 designs compiled over 25 years.

Upwind racing sails

 

When it comes to racing the best option for your upwind sails is to use a Lightwave Membrane. The strength to weight, shape retention and outright performance are second to none and results speak for themselves.

 

We offer a range of options and will customise every design to suit the type of racing you will be competing in. We will provide you with the fastest racing sails fully optimised for any style of racing including shorthanded, offshore, fully crewed one design and IRC / ORC.

Downwind racing sails

 

If you want to maximise the downwind performance of your boat then an Ultimate Sail is the perfect choice. For many seasons we've designed and produced some of the fastest downwind sails seen on the race track. At the same time our last generation of running Asymmetrics can run at the same deep angles as a symmetric spinnaker.

 

Our advanced sail design program moulds the perfect sail in size and shape prior to manufacture. All sails are manufactured using our unique full radial multi panel layout and are constructed from the best nylons. The result is a sail with a smooth flying shape that is stable and easy to trim.

 

Corner loads are addressed by specially engineered layered radial patches which help to spread the loads through the sail more evenly and absorb the shock loads inherent in all downwind sails.

Reaching racing sails

Our Jib Tops and IRC Code 0's fill the gap between jibs and downwind reaching sails such as an A5. The average IRC yacht now has non overlapping headsails which can be inhauled and a medium roach mainsail and can go upwind very effectively in all but the lightest of conditions.  For anyone racing offshore or round the cans regattas like Cowes Week these sails give a huge performance benefit and allow you to sail at 100% of your boat's performance all of the time.
