Downwind Cruising Sails

Our Cruising Range of downwind spinnakers and asymmetric cruising chutes are designed to be stable and easy to handle.

We use top quality cloth and design using full radial layouts and as always, we cut and build all of our sails in-house at our loft in the UK using quality webbing reinforcements and radial patches.

The introduction of Top Down Furlers, has revolutionised the ease of handling of downwind sails and makes fast downwind and light air cruising much more user friendly. Please talk to us today about the different sail handling options available.

Code Zeros have now become a fantastic choice of performance enhancing sail for the cruiser, a light to medium air close reaching sail that furls and stows with ease and lessens the amount of engine time.

For the racing sailor, we supply the full range of Spinnaker and Asymmetric sails.

From deep light runners, to C5 and C0 reachers, we work personally with you  to identify your sail plan’s performance weak spots and improve all round race boat speed.

We build with the best material manufacturers, and use the best downwind sail design software available.

We use Dyneema webbing on all of our performance racing spinnakers making our sails, light, tough and fast.
