“We used North’s standard Melges 24 One Design sails and the performance of these sails during the 6-day, 11-race series was fantastic. Our speed  and height were awesome and we had no sail issues at all."
Chris Larson, 2009 World Champion

Jib (J-7K) 

The full radial J-7K perfectly compliments the AP-3 Range of mainsails it is also manufactured from black Kevlar ZZ-09. It is an all purpose jib built to our championship winning design. The J-7 Jib features "vertical batten" (VB) design, which delivers slightly more sail area and better shape control than we were able to build last year. The addition of those three battens eliminates some of the leech hollow and for a straighter cleaner leech, particularly on the upper sections.The new batten pockets have openings at the leech to allow for easy batten removal.

Jib standard features:

  • Epoxy battens
  • Vision window
  • Leech line
  • Leech tell tales
  • Trim tell tales
  • 3 speed stripes

J-Zero Kevlar Jib

This full radial all purpose jib was designed with a slightly fuller entry than the J-7, which makes this jib extremely easy to steer in all sea and wind conditions. Made out of black Kevlar ZZ-09 the J-Zero Jib features "vertical batten" (VB) design, which delivers slightly more sail area and better shape control than we were able to build last year. The addition of those three battens eliminates some of the leech hollow and for a straighter cleaner leech, particularly on the upper sections. The new batten pockets have openings at the leech to allow for easy batten removal.

Max Runner Spinnaker

The full radial North Max Runner, previously known as the VMG, is designed for running in all conditions, it is manufactured from a combination of Superkote 75 & Dynakote 75. It is a great all-around spinnaker that can sail deeper than any other sail on the market and is open enough to sail up to defend your position when necessary. Cut very full in the luff, which supports a lot of projected luff area, the North Max Runner runs very deep and is easy to keep up to speed. Because the leech of the sail is relatively open, this sail also performs well when the wind is up or very light and forward of the beam.

Under the rules, you are allowed to have two spinnakers on board, having the North Max Runner in combination with the North Power Zone Reacher is highly recommended.

For a one-spinnaker program, we recommend this as the spinnaker of choice! This sail works well in all conditions!

Spinnaker standard features:

  • Sail bag
  • Class royalty label
  • Stock colours
For prices and more information contact our Melges 24 Experts or your
Or go to our online store






P-1 Reacher Spinnaker

The North P-1 Reacher is powerful to get you over the waves, and it is also open in the leech with a flatter luff curve so that when you press up for speed the boat accelerates and planes without the overpowered feeling. This sail gets you in the power zone more quickly.The power zone is the zone where the boat is powered up and planing freely, not bound up or over heeled. We use this sail in all planing conditions and it is also very fast in light air, especially when there is chop.

Under the rules, you are allowed to have two spinnakers on board, having the North P-1 Reacher in combination with the North Max Runner is highly recommended.

Spinnaker standard features:

  • Sail bag
  • Class royalty label
  • Stock colours
