J/80 MAXM1 All-Purpose Mainsail

The MAXM1 World Championship winning design by Max Skelley is manufactured with a crosscut panel layout using Dimension 260B HTP Dacron. The crosscut layout provides for a forgiving, user-friendly and easy to trim mainsail.

J/80 T-6R All-Purpose Mainsail

The World Championship winning T-6R Mainsail uses a full radial panel layout, which allows the sail to cope with the loads running through it when sailing. This gives a smoother sail, which holds its shape longer than a more conventional cross cut sail. The T-6R is made from North Sails' own Radian 6.3oz Dacron. This is the world's first high performance warp oriented Dacron.

J/80 BTY-12-3DL All-Purpose 3DL Jib

The BTY-12-3DL All Purpose thermo moulded sail offers a stronger more durable sail with excellent performance and longevity. The BTY-23DL has proved to be an outstanding all round sail around the globe.

J/80 MR-5 Spinnaker
