Sailcloth is connected to the boat
Sailcloth distributor Kayospruce says it is seeing an increasing trend of end users being more specific about their requirements.
This includes the sail handling systems, how the sails will be reefed and stowed, the type of sailing or racing to be carried out and whether they will be fully crewed or shorthanded.
Armed with this data, Kayospruce is able to work with sailmakers to specify the type of cloth to be used in sail design, explained the company’s Chris Owen.
He added: “Over the last ten years, we’ve also seen a noticeable growth in high quality genoa furling systems, asymmetric furlers and full-length batten car hardware.”
Kayospruce has several different ranges of fabrics: The Newport range offers all-purpose fabric, low aspect and radial constructions, suitable for the coastal sailor.
The Fastnet is more suited to offshore and long-distance sailing with bigger yarns and better UV resistance.
And Kayospruce’s Warp Drive fabric is the only specific warp orientated radial fabric in the market explained Chris, while its top of the range Marblehead fabric offers 40% more fibre than any other fabric on the market today.
