UK Sail Design

Modern computer design programs create a 3D model of your boat that is used to make sure a designed sail is perfectly matched to your boat and rig. Designers can see how the sail fits around the spreaders and shrouds as well as make sure the clew height and sheeting angle are right. We can also analyze how a main and genoa work together to make sure your boat stays balanced. What we are looking for is a sail plan and sail shapes that put the maximum driving force in precisely the right place to produce a perfectly balanced boat – and with the least amount of drag.


Left is the 3D rendering on a Light No. 1 genoa for a Santa Cruz 50. Right is the same sail flying on the boat. The draft stripes are virtually identical.
