The best investment I’ve made in the different boats I’ve raced has been 3Di sails. Initially the cost is higher, but the quality and durability of 3Di composite makes these sails an investment more than profitable over time. Without a doubt I would buy 3Di again for my next boat.

3Di sails are noticeably better. Last summer we won almost every ocean race we entered and had our competitors scratching their heads. The sails held up well and we expect to strike fear in our competitors’ hearts again next year! An exceptional product!
J28 | Gone Away
Tremendous durability was the thing that got me. 3Di is great for those of us with older boats. The boat has never gone faster upwind and points higher at the same time. It has brought life back in my old boat.
