3DL Carbon/Kevlar Medium/Heavy Jib HJ-1 New!

The new Medium Heavy jib was designed for stronger wind conditions. This sail is slightly flatter to allow the trimmer to trim harder without affecting the mainsail shape. This sail is geared toward the 12-25 knot wind range. The foot round has been maximized for Aero-dynamic efficiency.

Jib standard features:

  • Colour coded draft stripes
  • Vision windows
  • RBS E glass battens

Whomper Runner Spinnaker

2010 World Champion!

58 square meters of area, we took the Monster and made it even bigger. This sail is fast in 8-20 knots where it's large size is just right. We make this sail out of Superlite 50 which is a light and durable material that is best in this wind range.

Spinnaker standard features:

  • Sail numbers
  • Sail bag
  • Class royalty label is not included but can be offered on request at an additional charge
  • Stock colours

Monster Runner Spinnaker

Recommended AP Runner!

This is the fastest runner on the market, designed to project a large area and has a very fast stable flying shape. This sail is 54 sq.m and constructed with Superlite 50, a light, stable fabric that sheds water nicely and has a very high tear resistance. The useable wind range for this sail is 6-23 knots, and is the best all purpose runner for a two sail inventory. If you sail in predominantly windy venues you should consider this sail out of Airx 600, a slightly heavier, stronger fabric.

Spinnaker standard features:

  • Sail numbers
  • Sail bag
  • Class royalty label is not included but can be offered on request at an additional charge
  • Stock colours

Mid Size Runner

Designed for 0-25 knots

This sail is designed to cover the lower wind ranges and the tighter angles that you may encounter in a light shifting breeze, especially on the lakes. This sail is 49 sq.m, and constructed out of Superlite 50 .05oz material. This sail is also a very good All Purpose spinnaker for the light air lakes. Recommended wind range 0-8 knots or if necessary up to 25 knots.

Spinnaker standard features:

  • Sail numbers
  • Sail bag
  • Class royalty label is not included but can be offered on request at an additional charge
  • Stock colours

VMG Light Runner

Designed for 0-6 knots

The VMG Light Runner is designed for the really light drifty stuff where you can barely fly a spinnaker. This sail is 44 sq.m and is made with Contender Superlite 40.

This sail is a must have for the Swiss Lakes, or to really fill out the inventory for a serious campaign. If it is very light and lumpy you must have this sail.

Spinnaker standard features:

  • Sail numbers
  • Sail bag
  • Class royalty label is not included but can be offered on request at an additional charge
  • Stock colours
