Express


The "Express" has been the #1 OD class in Sweden ever since 1979 when the class was launched. Over the last 10 years the class has grown in the neighbouring countries, Norway, Denmark, Finland and also in Northern Germany.

Sail makers from North Sails have been involved in the class from the very beginning. We are offering two models of each sail. The XT-8/GS-1 combination is the more powerful designs trimmed with slightly more rig tension and a wider range of backstay adjustment. The HO-4 main uses hard tempered  cloth and is designed to match the OJ-3 Jib. Spinnaker model is chosen for distance - or course racing.

Mainsail (XT-8)

A powerful design which has proven very easy to trim to top speed. With this main you use plenty of backstay tension when flattening the sail as the breeze picks up. This in turn gives an automatic forestay control to the Jib. It comes with two full length top battens (Light and Med/Hvy)

Mainsail standard features:

  • Full Length top batten
  • Class insignia
  • Sail numbers
  • Vision window
  • Spreader window
  • Epoxy battens
