Catalogue excerpts

Stronger, lighter and less stretch, factors known for many years to make better sails. CL fabrics feature all these benefits, plus outstanding durability to provide improved performance and easier boat and sail handling. That’s the CL promise. ● Reduced cloth weight and a soft hand improves light wind performance. ● Less stretch means better shape retention, driving your boat forward instead of heeling it over. ● Double taffeta sandwich constructions makes sails that are tough. ● Lighter sails create less heel and less pitching making for more comfortable sailing. ● Better shape retention from low stretch cloth allows you to hold sails higher up the wind range without the need to reef. ● Standard CL-P fabrics in polyester are very cost effective. ● High modulus fabrics with Pentex Carbon and Dyneema display unique properties that make them suitable for particularly demanding applications. ● Pentex styles provide the ideal mid range solution with the additional benefit of our renowned 45 degree DIAX scrim.
