The new M7 mainsail is modeled after the very successful NB-1 Main. The M7 has a radial head section to smooth out the area of the top batten, making the sail easier to trim. The M7 also features a radial clew patch to strengthen the clew and keep the sail smoother and faster! The beauty of the M7, is that you will not have to change your tuning!

What are some of the best ways to de-power the J22?
of course, many ways to de-power a J/22. While many use the traveler,
I have found that leaving it centered and pulling the vang very hard
is more effective for me. At max vang tension in big breeze, we'll even
see 3" of bend in the boom! This tension allows the mainsheet to
be played quickly as a traveler...maintaining constant helm balance.
The outhaul and cunningham are of course, pulled hard with the shelf
closed up and the luff wrinkles barely removed...
lead should only be moved aft no more than 2" and the sheet eased
to keep the slot open. As the puff hits it would not be unusual for
the sheet to be eased a foot ( and then re-trimmed after the boat was
under control) to allow the boat to carve up into the wind. It's also
important that the luff tension via the jib halyard be kept smooth as
well. And of course, hike hard!
