The Fastest J/109 on the Water

Whether you’re racing shorthanded, under handicap, or to the sunset, your J/109 is designed to excel. Take your boat to the max by outfitting it with 3Di North Sails. With multiple cuts to choose from, you’ll find the ideal jib and spinnaker for the conditions. Combine those with your trusted North 3Di mainsail, and feel the performance of your J/109.


We have fast sails for your boat. Please contact an expert or request a quote.
