5 Oz High Modulus Dacron, #6 Luff tape, White UV Cover

An big upgrade from the standard factory sail! Reasonably priced but made with high quality 5 oz Dacron in a cross cut design. These sails feature a hydraulically pressed stainless steel ring for the clew, and reinforced nylon webbing for the head and tack to allow a strong but flexible connection to your furler.

While slightly heavier and stiffer to handle than the factory sails, this sail will last much longer, perform better through a larger wind range (your boat will go faster and heel less), and will hold their shape better in light winds. You also won't have to reef as often as with the standard factory sail.

This sail includes a built in white UV cover for added convenience on boats that are permanently or frequently moored in the water. We now use the new lightweight White Sunbrella Cloth fabric for the cover, this material provides the best UV protection available but adds about half as much weigh to the sail as traditional covers. This new lightweight acrylic cover also has much less effect on sail shape over time. If you mostly trailer your boat we recommend you purchase the version of this sail that comes without a UV cover and use our pull up sock type cover which provides both UV protection while moored and protection from dirt and abrasion while trailering, this gives you the best protection and the best sailing performance. For maximum sail life a sock type cover is recommended over any sail even if it has a built in UV cover in areas with lots of sun or if the boat is moored for long periods between use.

The #6 luff tape on this sail fits most furling units (call us if you have Schaefer Snapfurl).

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