High Performance Reaching Sails

Lighter, Stronger more stable Spinnakers and Gennakers™ for the race course or the course home.

North Sails offers a wide variety of downwind symmetric and asymmetric sail types made from woven nylon or polyester sailcloth. Each of our sail types is designed for a specific range of wind speeds and angles.

Every North sail is custom designed to suit each customer’s needs and each boat’s specific characteristics. These sophisticated designs maximize VMG/VMC in the broadest range of wind and sea conditions. NPC Downwind sails provide higher boatspeeds, deeper angles and faster acceleration with consistent and predictable trimming characteristics.
