NPL DOWNWIND

Sail Series Logo

REACHING HIGHSPEED PERFORMANCE

Stronger, firmer reaching sails for point to point performance.

Modern asymmetric reaching sails require low stretch, light weight and highly durable materials. North Downwind Laminates are a purpose built range of sail materials to meet these requirements, produced on the North Cloth laminator using the eXact x-ply insert process.

Our Xi downwind styles are offered in multiple constructions to optimally address the wide range of conditions encountered by reaching sails – for inshore, offshore, monohull, multihull, racing or cruising.


  • Custom designed sails for Maximum VMC
  • Purpose built materials optimized for strength, weight and durability
  • Furling capable for internal torsion cable applications
  • Engineered for widest possible wind range
