North Panel Cloth is the North Sails woven polyester product family. North Sails has a long tradition of making dacron sails since the fiber was first introduced as a sailcloth in the 1950’s. Today we control every aspect of the cloth manufacturing processes – using our experience to ensure the highest quality products for both cruising and racing applications. Our North Sails’ materials engineering team focuses on developing and producing sailcloth that will enhance your sailing experience while maximizing the value of your new sail purchase. High-quality weaving and finishing of the perfect combination of yards for the intended purpose, results in high performance with exceptional durability.
