All purpose cruising fabric for quality at a good value
The cruising sailor’s cloth requirements, although different from the racing sailor’s, are no less demanding. Cruising sails must provide a level of durability in keeping with the demands of the cruising sailor, whether they be blue water, coastal, or weekend excursions. Stretch performance is also a consideration, as efficient sail shapes can help boat speed and handling, making a cruise more comfortable and enjoyable. And finally, good cruising sailcloth must be designed with quality in mind. Sails can be a substantial investment for their owners who will expect years of service from their sail inventory.
Supercruise styles combine quality fiber selection with high beat-up constructions for improved stretch resistance, bias stability, and fabric recovery.
