3DL Mainsail (V-7) NEW !

2015 European Champion

Winner Amlin International Moth Regatta 2015

The all new V-7 3DL Mainsail is an all purpose Moth sail. Careful distribution of shape and luff curve have produced a fantastic, easy-to-use sail for both upwind and downwind sailing. The sail is built using North Sails 3DL technology in a mixture of Carbon and aramid which results in the strongest, smoothest and lightest Moth sail we have ever built. Internal batten pockets provide perfect symmetry from tack to tack and custom made curved carbon fiber camber inducers mean the flow around the leeward side of the sail attaches easily while providing a further weight saving.

Mainsail standard features:

  • Painted class insignia
  • Sail numbers
  • Carbon fiber curved Camber inducers
  • Internal batten pockets for perfect symmetry between tacks
  • Epoxy battens
  • Carbon battens upgrade available
  • Tell tales
  • Long roll bag
  • Available for kinked booms [between 10 and 20 degrees] and straight booms

  • Battens
  • Tell tales
  • Long roll bag

Mainsail standard features:

  • Class insignia
  • Sail numbers
  • Camber inducers
  • Battens
  • Tell tales
  • Long roll bag

Upwind Technique

  • More vang improves VMG upwind.  With a 32:1 you should need moderate tension once up and foiling and very tight tension upwind once fully powered up.
  • Reduce Vang for a little more power when needed.
  • Once fully powered up, i.e. TWS greater than 12-14kts max vang.
  • Downhaul should be always snug to remove creases and then increased slowly with windspeed and power requirements - Vang sheet the sail as opposed to cunningham first as primary power control.
  • Once fully overpowered upwind max vang and cunningham, as much as the sail will allow on cams etc. there may be a requirement to ease some vang upwind when very windy.
  • Set the outhaul tight ashore once the vang is on and 1/3 cunningham.
  • Shroud tension should be just taught when rigged ashore.

    Downwind Technique

    • Vang eased but not too much.  Overeasing causes the head to wtist open too much.
    • C-Ham eased till there are just wrinkles on luff in light wind, a little less in breeze.
    • No need to adjust outhaul as easing the cunningham has the effect of deepening the base sufficiently.

    Good Luck on the Water!
