Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Racing Racing Sails – What makes to consider Re: Re: Racing Sails – What makes to consider


This is very much a personal choice and there does not seem to be much difference in performance between the top choice makes: Mac, P&B, Banks, Hyde, Jeckells and whatever happened to North Wayfarer sails, one tends to get used to a particular cut. I have used Pinnell and Bax for the past ten years and have been very satisfied, sailing in all conditions including sea sailing. Their spinnaker is particularly good.

Cost might be an issue, so ask around and there are often very good deals in the autumn if you can wait, such as 20% off.
