Mainsail

CRC

The CRC main is the latest evolution of the earlier models. The sail has greater mast bend, is more powerful in the lower section and has less volume atop. These characteristics make it especially fast in low winds, because the leech does not close at the top and is thus easy to trim. This mainsail continues to prove itself a winner and is one of the most requested sails worldwide.

XPM

The XPM mainsail has less mast bend, more volume high up and is flatter in the lower section. The trimming in light winds is more critical, and care has to be taken not to close the leech too much at the top, but it is especially fast in winds of 8-10 knots and up.

Jib

AR2-F

This jib was born as an evolution of the earlier models to adapt to the greater tensions used by many crews. The depth in the front section has been increased to make this sail more powerful and facilitate the ride over waves.

XPJ

The XPJ jib has been designed to be fast and easy to trim in medium to strong winds. The leech is more linear and less twisted and requires careful trimming with the sheet below 8 knots of wind in order not to close it too much at the top.
