The World Championship winning SD/TH Genoa is an easy to trim sail that performs exceptionally well in light to moderate wind conditions when a wide steering grove is needed. It’s straight exit allows for tighter sheeting in moderate winds, which makes this sail ideal for flat water sailing, but with the Genoa leads forward it provides the power to punch through heavy chop. The SD/TH Genoa is manufactured from Kevlar/Technora laminate, to a full radial construction.
Material / Technology
NORTH PANELED LAMINATE
NPL is the product group for laminated sailcloths. Our proprietary “NorLams” feature very wide angle eXact “X” reinforcement yarns, eliminating the need for scrim “carrier” yarn content (carrier yarns add weight and bulk, without contributing to strength or reducing stretch). In some instances, laminate materials from other sailcloth suppliers are specified – for example when a certain sail or rule requirement indicates this is the optimal choice. In all cases, the best cloth for the application is the cloth you will find in every North One Design sail.
