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

Tour Highlights

  • Fully protected high performance laminate
  • Strong and light with good stretch resistance
  • Easy handling
