SAILS TECHNOLOGY

JOHN SKYE ABOUT THE Y25 SAIL COLLECTION

Y25 is something special for us. Not only a quarter century, but probably the cleanest and most refined sail collection we have ever produced. We took every range, every sail, every size and stripped out all that was not totally essential, leaving behind the purest range conceivable. We now split our main collection into 3 easy to understand line-ups, making everything clearer and simpler.

On top of this, all our most popular sails are also available in our industry leading Compact Series technology. This is our unique folding sail system and collapsible rig that allows a full quiver of sails to fit inside a back pack. Huge advances in both the performance and the technical finish, means that more than ever before we offer no compromise, test winning, high performance rig, with industry changing levels of convenience.

New for this year we add our Foil sail range. 3 sails dedicated to the art of flying. The X-wing foil is our full foil race machine, designed to fly in virtually zero wind. The F-Wing is our hybrid sail, allowing both fast windfoiling and freerace windsurfing all in one easy to rig package. Finally we introduce the Freefoil sail, a small light, powerful, yet playful, foiling engine. Designed to allow the smallest sail to be used in the lightest of winds, it is now possible to foil with a sub 6m sail in 10-12kts, something that has truly game changing possibilities.

Like always on top of this is our unique Italian Style. With a spectacular new colourway, whose clean lines are defined with bold colour blocks, that looks great on its own, but when coupled with the latest board sets the rider apart.

Simply. Stunning.

HEAD CURVE

By reducing the area in the head of the sail with a shortened top batten the sail feels lighter and more responsive in the hands.

3D EVA HEAD PIECE

Anti chafe protection.

2MM SCRIM – 5MM DIMENSION POLYANT X-PLY

1. For ultimate weight saving in the tops of select sails.

2. For increased durability and resistance. Used extensively along load lines in our cross panel construction.

PU BATTEN END CHAFE PROTECTOR

Batten tip protection for avoiding chafing whilst rigging.

CROSS PANEL CONSTRUCTION

By following the load lines with both the panel layout and also the warp direction of the X-ply we create a strong and powerful framework to the sail, reducing stretch and allowing lighter materials to be used on the perimeter. The result is great performance and quick response on the water.

EXTENDED CLEW REINFORCEMENT

Reinforcement patch extends into the main window to spread the loads across multiple sail panels for increased durability.

POWER CLEW

Twin eyelets for huge tunable range.

Outer clew = power and drive
Inner Clew =maneuverability and control.

EXTREME POWER CLEW

Extreme variation of POWER CLEW giving even larger range of tuning for windfoil / windsurf adaptability.

BOOM CUTOUT INDICATOR

To help position the boom at the correct height every session.

ITS INTEGRATED TRIM SYSTEM

Integrated rigging guide to guarantee perfect tuning every session.

3D EVA MOULDED TACK FAIRING

Offering protection to the board and enclosing pulley blocks and ropes inside.

DOUBLE SEAMS

To enhance sail strength and increase durability on select models in key strength areas.
