Upwind Racing Sails

Lightwave sails are designed and engineered as a one piece composite membrane with custom Yarn layouts on the inside of the laminate and soft Mylar film on the outside. 


The finish of your sail will vary according to your personal requirements and the design which your sailmaker produces for you.


Every sail is custom using a carefully selected combination of the best materials for your boat and intended use.  




The benchmark for membrane sails. This technology has won world championships and powered high performance cruising boats alike.

  • Inshore Racing


Lightwave Platinum

The membrane sail is sandwiched between two layers of a continuous filament matrix made from multidirectional yarns. This increases the stability of the sail for no aditional weight giving the ultimate in performance for racing inshore or offshore. 

  • Inshore Racing
  • Offshore Racing
  • Superyachts


Lightwave Endurance

These membranes were developed for cruising and offshore sailors who wanted the fastest and lightest sails, but with added long life and hard wearing capability. If your boat has a LOA of 25’ or above, you won't find a better performing or more durable sail on the market. 

  • Offshore Sails
  • Heavy Weather Racing Jibs
  • Any sail requiring the ultimate in durability
