We are now the North of England agents for the World’s leading sail makers North Sails. And although we are not building sails at our Windermere loft, we are selling new sails from North’s Gosport lofts. We are providing service, repairs and valeting on all sails.
North’s laminate Mainsails and Genoas provide a superior combination of lightweight, low stretch and long life for the cruising sailor searching for more in terms of performance.
Dacron cruising sails also offer an excellent balance between durability, strength, UV resistance and cost. North’s panelled racing sails are built with the World’s finest and fastest premium racing fabrics.
Available in radial panel layouts using Bainbridge Diax laminates or North Gatorback Kevlar, each North panelled sail is engineered so it will hold it’s designed "flying shape" over a remarkably broad wind spectrum. This means that the sails are not only faster, but easier to trim and they deliver a combination of lightweight, low stretch, durability and value which cannot be matched.
Innovative design and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques produce un-compromising race sails. With versatility across broad wind ranges, 3DL is revolutionary sail design.
The introduction of 3DL to the racing world has provided winners in all major regattas including the Admirals Cup, Volvo Ocean Race and the America’s cup.
The manufacturing process has undergone several innovations since it’s concept in 1994 and now provides smooth, stable and durable sail shapes which are vital in any racing sail inventory.
