The next step is to Browse the different types of cloth we have available and think about what kind of sailing you do… are you a racer or more a cruiser? Perhaps long voyages and circumnavigation are more your thing? Maybe you like to fly right past the competition as if they were floating there like a seagull? These are all aspects of your sailing style which will influence which sail cloth will perform the best for you. This page has a plethora of information regarding our offerings and all things sailcloth.
Details and Accessories
The next to consideration are the details and accessories. Precision Sails takes details seriously we put more time into the design and detail than anyone else, that’s what makes us different. Sail hardware components such as: Battens, Reefs, Sail Controls, Identifications, Reinforcements, Stitching, Luff attachments, Headboards, Foot and Clew, Lines and Cleats, and Sail Indicators are important things to ponder which affect the performance of your sail. The following video from one of our senior designers, Jeremy, describes the intricacies of mainsail luff attachment hardware and systems.
One of the more fun parts of ordering from Precision Sails is customizing your sail. We offer custom insignia and graphic printing on your sails. It can be anything you want. Perhaps you want a custom, stylish look to your sail without losing any quality in the cloth for aesthetics. The Tuxedo package offers a good solution in this case. Don’t be afraid to put a little something of yourself on your spinnakers. These sails are big and beautiful, people watch.
An example of an accessory you might want is a spinnaker sock – see the following video to see how it works
