North Sails Australia is dedicated to servicing club racers who are looking to improve the performance of their boats and with 3DL sails for boats 35ft and under now available at very competitive prices. There has never been a better time to invest in your boats performance.

North Sails 3DL 600 S is a 100% high modulus Aramid yarn sail and is ideally suited to the club racer who appreciates the superior shape holding of a one piece 3D thermo moulded sail and longer racing life. Available with either Mylar or double sided taffeta scrims for increased durability these 3DL sails have far better shape holding characteristics and are now available at the same price as an equivalent panel sail!

The team at North Sails Australia will custom measure your boat and bend characteristics of your masts so our designers can design the sails to specifically suit your boat’s needs. And are always available to come for a sail to assess your boats sail / rig set up and answer any questions you have.
