The Dacron Cruising Sail Reinvented

3Di NORDAC combines our unique composite molded sail technology with reliable polyester that cruising sailors have trusted for decades. The result is an innovative cruising sail with smoother and more permanent aerodynamic shape.  By using exclusive spread filament manufacturing, North Sails is able to extract a new level of performance from a traditional fiber.

North Sails developed 3Di NORDAC strictly with small to medium-sized cruising boats in mind. We’ve built more cruising sails than any other sailmaker in history, and our experience inspired us to reinvent the dacron cruising sail. 3Di NORDAC gives you greater control, more comfort, and better speed in an affordable and durable package.

3Di NORDAC is an ideal choice for you when:
  • You appreciate great sail shape
  • You enjoy getting the most from your boat’s performance
  • You expect durability and great value
  • You want better sail performance than woven cross cut sails can ever provide

  • 100% polyester for ultimate durability

“Our new 3Di NORDAC sails continue to amaze us. The shape and finish rival the best sails I've ever seen or used over my 40 plus years of sailing. We are exceptionally pleased with these sails.”

Steve Fredrick

First 42 | USA

“I am very satisfied with my 3Di NORDAC mainsail. It is very interesting to think that we have a cruising sail made with the same technology as the jibs of the Americas Cup."

Paco Alarcón

First 33.7 | Spain

"The breakthrough, is that North Sails adapted the 3Di technology to process polyester fibers. A 100 percent polyester sails that holds it’s shape and is low cost. Surely this is too good to be true?"
