No Reef Point / 4.0 Dacron / Standard Battens

This is the least expensive way to get back on the water quickly. This sail has sail slides, no reef points, and standard battens. It is a light weight sail but will get you going and keep you sailing for a season or two.


1 Reef Point / 5.0 High Modulus Dacron / Standard Battens / Loose Foot / Ropeless Foot and Luff / "M" Logo

We now have the first batch of these BWY exclusive sails in stock from our new supplier, they are even nicer than before and have more features. BETTER YET WE ARE HOLDING THE OLD PRICE AS AN INTRODUCTORY SPECIAL!!

This sail is a very popular option, and a big upgrade from the economy sail at a really good price. The heavier cloth will hold its good shape much longer through the life of the sail. Includes one reef at 42" which is a standard first reef rather than the factory sail that had one very deep reef, essentially the second reef with the first reef missing. This gives you the ability to reef sooner and continue to sail comfortably and efficiently longer. Also includes jack lines and "dogbone" tack reef fittings for easier reefing. This sail has a loose foot, meaning that the sail is attached to the boom at the tack and with a single heavy outhaul slide. The economy sail has no reef point, and is lighter weight.

This is a BWY Exclusive sail, and is typically in our inventory and available to ship.

2 Reef Points / 5.0 High Modulus Dacron / Jack Lines / Standard Battens / Loose Foot / Ropeless Foot and Luff / "M" Logo

We now have the first batch of these BWY exclusive sails in stock from our new supplier, they are even nicer than before and have more features. BETTER YET WE ARE HOLDING THE OLD PRICE AS AN INTRODUCTORY SPECIAL!!

This sail is our most popular option, and a big upgrade from the economy sail at a really good price. The heavier cloth will hold its good shape much longer through the life of the sail. Includes one reef at 42" and one at 84" rather than the factory sail that had one very deep reef, essentially the second reef with the first reef missing. This gives you the ability to single reef sooner (about 12 - 14 Kts.) and continue to sail comfortably and efficiently in higher winds when double reefed. Also includes jack lines and "dogbone" tack reef fittings for easier reefing. This sail has a loose foot, meaning that the sail is attached to the boom at the tack and with a single heavy outhaul slide. The economy sail has no reef point, and is lighter weight.

2 Reef Points / 6.0 Dacron / Standard Battens

Very rugged traditional Dacron sails. Heavy weight for the demands of off shore sailing. You may also choose this sail if you plan to tow your boat a long distance and then sail for a year. Due to the added weight of these sails they are a little more difficult to handle. Polyester Dacon with seams finished with three rows of zig-sag stiching. Corner rings reinforced with webbing and finish with leather on top. Strong sail low in stretch for durability and optimum performance over the widest possible wind range.
2 Reef Points / 6.0 Dacron / Full Battens

Very rugged traditional Dacron sails. Full Battens. Heavy weight for the demands of off shore sailing. You may also choose this sail if you plan to tow your boat a long distance and then sail for a year. Due to the added weight of these sails they are a little more difficult to handle. Polyester Dacron with seams finished with three rows of zig-sag stitching. Corner rings reinforced with webbing and finish with leather on top. Strong sail low in stretch for durability and optimum performance over the widest possible wind range.

These sails are new to our BWY Exclusive sail line for 2020! We are truly excited to offer these exceptional sails at such a competitive price. The new Lite Skin fabric allows us to offer a combination of durability, performance, and ease of handling never before possible.

Historically there have essentially been three choices in sail cloth (other than exotic racing fabrics). Dacron, which is affordable, is plain white, has a reasonable life span, and is easy to handle in lighter weights, but has higher stretch and less performance than more modern fabrics. Racing Laminates, which are very light weight, moderately expensive, flashy looking, offer high performance, and are very fragile. Cruising Laminates, which combine the basic construction of a racing laminate with an outer layer of woven Dacron to improve durability. These fabrics are fairly expensive, offer good performance, tend to be somewhat stiff to handle and look essentially like a Dacron sail.

Enter Lite Skin, an all new 6 layer laminate from Dimension Polyant. Lite Skin offers a strength to weight ratio high enough to be a legitimate race fabric, but with such excellent durability and ease of care that it makes a great high end cruising fabric as well. As an added bonus Lite Skin is reasonably priced and has a really cool look. All BWY Lite Skin sails have the premium finish and features you would expect in a high end sail.
