At UK Sailmakers, we know some things about racing sails.
Shape is critical. Strength is important, especially for holding shape when loads build up in a heavy blow. Adjustability is key, too – so the sail’s shape can adapt to changing conditions. Racing sails should also be as light as possible. Lighter weight decreases heeling and pitching moments and lets the sail take shape in drifting conditions.
To meet these needs, UK makes racing sails in a number of styles from a wide range of materials.
With so many options, you can choose the sail that fits your boat and budget.
For occasional racers, today’s woven fabrics provide a great sail at a great price. But for more serious competitors, laminated construction is the only choice.
