Ruffian 23


The following sails are our current recommended range. Older models not listed below are still available upon request.

Mainsail (RM-1)

The cross cut RM-1 Main is designed as an all round sail, and is fast throughout the wind range. The sail is manufactured from Dacron 5.9 Polykote and comes standard with one reef, class insignia, numbers, battens, tell tails and sail bag.

Genoa No.1 ( RG-1)

Wind Range 0-14 knots

This cross cut sail is built using 2 weights of cloth (Dacron 3.8 and 4.46 Polykote) we have used the heavier cloth  for the main body of the sail, and where you need the shape holding qualities of the firmer material. Then the lighter cloth is used on the luff, but only in the middle section of the sail, this lighter cloth responds quicker to slight differences in the breeze and ultimately makes the sail very easy to steer to. It comes complete with hanks, tell tails and sail bag.

Genoa No.2 (RJ-1)

Wind Range 14-20 knots

This cross cut genoa is constructed using a heavier weight cloth (Dacron 6.5 Polykote) which is used for the whole sail where low stretch material is the order of the day. It comes complete with hanks, tell tails and sail bag.

Genoa No.3 (R3-1)

Wind Range +20 knots

Due to the fact that this sail would only be used in the very top end of the wind range, it is constructed using what is probably the heaviest weight of cloth (Dacron 7.52 Polykote) used in one design sail making. It is a cross cut design and comes complete with hanks, tell tails and sail bag.

Spinnaker (RS-2)

Our bi radial spinnaker is constructed from Contender's silicone coated Dynakote 75 material, making hoisting and retrieval extremely easy. One of the other factors is that it repels water which means it will not stick to itself when wet, or soak up water when stored in the spinnaker bag.
