Our company has a huge experience in producing the racing sails made form various sailcloths: different kinds of dacron, different kinds of laminat, square and many other cloths. We make sails for racing yachts accoriding to the newest class rules, we make the logos, sings and numbers on the sails. We design the sails individually to the class and yacht so that the sails work perfectly. Each yacht, even not racing can have the sails in racilng profile.
“More speed!” is the call from the weather rail. The helmsman is telling you he’s got too much helm and all eyes are on the mainsheet trimmer to sort the issue.
With other boats close by swift action is needed to get the boat back on her feet and driving forward before she slips backwards into the fleet.
Doing a decent job of mainsail trimming is crucial to your team’s performance and, while it can be a pleasurable workout on a small boat, juggling tactical duties with playing backstay, traveller and mainsail twist, move up to a 50-footer and the task gets a whole lot tougher, even though the job list might look a bit shorter.
Either way it’s a multi-task role and acquiring a good feel for the boat in all modes and sail configurations can take more than a few races.
Although modern, light cruiser-racers will need depowering early, heavier displacement boats will carry a fully trimmed mainsail further up the wind range.
Logging the effect of alterations to rig tension and an accurate set of target boat speeds will help the mainsail trimmer, but establishing a good rapport with the helmsman and headsail trimmers should fast track you to delivering the performance the guys on the rail are looking for.
Better Boat Handling with a Better Sail Shape
Sail Vista sails are engineered as full-size membranes and designed with a fully-integrated, custom, fiber network that addresses sail loading in all directions rather than along primary load paths only. To achieve the ideal shape, sail designers use proprietary computational tools, to create custom shaping, tailored on a sail-by-sail basis. The resulting sail shape lasts longer and is easy to trim through a wide range of conditions.
Longevity & Repeatability
Our two-step lamination process results in a superior membrane that delivers a longer life compared to laminates made by single-step methods. Sail panels are completely cured before the shaping process begins, eliminating the effects of shrinkage and guaranteeing shape repeatability.
Lightweight Fiber Options For All Needs
Multiple fiber type sails, providing a range of options for different size boats and sailing requirements. Our sail consultants can help you make the right selection based on your needs.
RACING DOWNWIND SAILS
These sails are legendary for their performance. Using sophisticated design tools for off-wind sail development, wind tunnel testing, and the expertise of designers, technologists and manufacturing experts from industry and academia, ours racing spinnakers have been developed to provide downwind power for every type of racing situation.
DESIGNED FOR PERFORMANCE, BUILT TO LAST
All spinnakers feature multi-panel, radial construction for accurate, 3D shaping, smooth flying shape, and precise alignment of loads. Only the highest quality nylon, polyester and laminate spinnaker materials are used, and attention to construction details ensures rugged durability and dependability.
