The new N14-L18 Mainsail was developed for Mat Belcher by the North Sails Japan design team. Its powerful depth in the head gives an ideal twist for driving the boat to speed and for quick acceleration in planing conditions. Lower drag is created by tweaking the bottom half shape, which improves both speed and pointing performance under full power conditions. One of the biggest advantages of buying a North radial is that you can customize it to match your mast bend profile, sailing weight, or target wind range.
