NPC DOWNWIND Maximum Downwind Performance
NPL DOWNWIND Stronger, firmer reaching sails for point to point performance
North Sails offers a wide variety of downwind symmetric and asymmetric sail types made using the NPC DOWNWIND sailcloth range. Each of our sail types is designed for a specific range of wind speeds and angles. Every North spinnaker is custom designed to suit each customer’s needs and maximize VMG/VMC in the broadest range of wind and sea conditions. NPC DOWNWIND sails provide higher boatspeeds, deeper angles, and faster acceleration with consistent and predictable trimming characteristics.
Modern asymmetric reaching sails require low stretch, lightweight, and highly durable materials. NPL DOWNWIND sails meet these requirements because they’re cut from purpose-built materials produced on the North Cloth laminator. North Sails offers multiple constructions to optimally address the wide range of conditions encountered by reaching sails – for inshore, offshore, monohull, multihull, racing, or cruising.
