FOUR NEW 3Di SAILS FOR MOTH SAILORS

Adapted For Different Rig Sizes And Hull Designs

As the world leader in One Design sailmaking, North Sails continues to develop products tailored to meet the needs and goals of racers in any and all classes and categories. Under the leadership of new North Sails Class Leader for Moths, Rob Greenhalgh, four new high-performance 3Di mainsails are now available to enhance the Moth sailor’s enjoyment and results on the water.

The Vi-8 3Di Mainsail is an all purpose sail for the Moth, recommended for a mast length of 5270mm with standard rigging. The Vi-8LA 3Di Mainsail is an all-purpose low aspect sail for the Moth, recommended for a mast length of 5100mm; this sail has low centre of effort. The Vi-8DS Decksweeper 3Di Mainsail is an all purpose sail for the Moth, recommended for mast length 5100mm and 60mm Mast stumps. Finally, the Bi-8DS Decksweeper 3Di Mainsail is an all-purpose deck sweeping sail for the Biecker Moths, and a recommended mast length of 5000mm.

Commenting on the new North Sails mainsail products, former multiple National and European International Moth Champion Rob Greenhalgh concluded, “North has long been seen as one of the leaders in Moth sailing and the new mainsails continue to provide our clients with the best design and materials on the circuit. Careful distribution of shape and luff curve has produced easy-to-use mainsails for both upwind and downwind sailing. 3Di technology continues to offer unrivaled benefits, including rigidity, weight reduction, shape holding, durability, and performance. I am confident Moth sailors will reap the rewards on the race course.”

“North has long been seen as one of the leaders in Moth sailing and the new mainsails continue to provide our clients with the best design and materials.”

As standard, every North Sails Moth mainsail comes with the following: carbon battens, internal batten pockets for perfect symmetry between tacks, windows, painted class insignia, sail numbers, 3D printed camber inducers, tell tales, and a long roll bag available for kinked booms [between 10 and 20 degrees] and straight booms.
