Formula 1

We are pleased to have supplied the majority of Formula 1 owners for at least 15 years. Over this time our sails have been used to win the Nationals on many occasions. Over this period we have supplied the leading formula 1 sailors to produce a winning rig.
The Formula 1 is easily overpowered and requires a mainsail which can be easily flattened. This allows full main to be carried into stronger breeze and gives greater flexibility in variable conditions.
The genoa is developed to respond easily to halyard tension making it useful over the widest possible wind band. We use a pentex taffeta leech on the genoa to prolong the life of the sail.
The No 2 genoa is built from 6.5 Polykote with maximum length leech battens to give stability when the breeze is up. Headsails can be provided for foil or hanks now allowed under class rules.
The spinnaker is a development of our successful sonata spinnaker and is a proven performer.
Our Formula 1 sails have been used for such diverse applications as a round Ireland circumnavigation and even a self tacking jib for single handed sailing.
