|North Premium Paneled 300 radial sails are made using laminates consisting of a mylar film core sandwiched between two thin layers of woven polyester fabric. They deliver lighter weight, lower stretch and improved shapeholding for small-to-midsize cruising and racing boats. The woven yarns carry load in the primary strain directions while the mylar film limits distortion in the off-threadline direction. The woven polyester outer layers maintain a soft feel for easy handling while radial construction delivers lower stretch and a smoother, longer lasting shape.|
North Premium Paneled 360x sails combine mylar film reinforced with North Gatorback™ aramid scrim and a hybrid layer of woven polyester/aramid taffeta for improved stretch resistance and performance.
Both 300 and 360x styles are designed for mid-sized performance cruisers, and can be optimized for class racing, handicap rules or rating rules. Both are also available in white or gray.
North sail designers use the same North Design Suite design software to create our 300 sails as they do for our dominant 3D molded sails, and can draw from the world’s largest library of winning racing sail designs (“molds”). This means North can produce a competitive 300 sail for virtually any sailboat or sailboat class.
