Stronger Cruising Laminates
Aramid-Enhanced Cruising Sails
NPL TOUR series sails are produced using the world’s most advanced sailcloth laminator. North Sails Xi Cruise laminates feature black aramid warp yarns and our exclusive eXact™ x-scrim reinforcement, sandwiched between thin layers of polyester taffeta. The result is an easy-to-handle radial cruising sail delivering low stretch and a smooth, long lasting shape. NPL Tour sails set the paneled standard for performance-minded coastal cruisers.
NPL Tour is an ideal choice when:
- You have a large boat with high loads
- You desire the low weight and low stretch provided by high modulus aramid fiber
- You require sails with less bulk than woven cloth to fit in a furling mast or boom
- Fully protected high performance laminate
- Strong and light with good stretch resistance
- Easy handling
- Xi Cruise: High tenacity black aramid yarn between embedded thin mylar film layers with polyester taffeta outer layers, black aramid warp insert and eXact x-ply yarns
