Forward Sailing has developed the first mainsail specially designed for a RAID Sailing or safe Leisure sailing, along the coast.
 
After listening to several passionate sailors who left quite far on board their beach catamaran, or in collaboration with the famous Franco-Suisse adventurer/pro sailor Yvan Bourgnon (we are developing his sails for his challenges  : Solo Round the World on a sport catamaran / Solo Northwest Passage on sportmulti-hull / New Records of the Mediterranean and Manche crossing ), we decided to integrate all the good ideas heard in our new mainsail compatible on many 18 feet catamarans (HB18 Formula, Pacific, Tiger many F18, etc…) 

Well adapted to enjoy sailing  far from the beach. This moderately powerful sail has robust finishes for long and windy coastal trips.

FORWARD SAILING INNOVATION :
The main innovation is the possibility to reduce the power of sail quickly.
The reefing is easily done which will ravage the less reckless and/or will increase your using range.
No more days to stay ashore!
you will be able to deal with wind sudden change and feel safe for a long raid or just with your Kids for an afternoon ride. 


High-performance sail:
- MNX6 laminated sailcloth fabric . (High reinforced fibers grid placed between 2 mylar films treated against UV). High benefits : excellent strenght to weight ratio, increased durability and strenght resistance.
This kind of cloth comes from Ocean Racing and isa  used by several top of the range sailmakers.This technology and the sail design managing efforts and ensures a good flow.  
- Cross Cut oriented finish with triradial reinforcement 
- Fiber battens + tensioners, easy to use thanks to a BTR/Allen key : the ideal tension is easily and quickly found! 
- 4 penants / tell tales control on the sail and 2 telltales on the leesh to control the flow

- Flat cut : Better Power control: Depending on cunningham tension, the top head of the sail twists during the gust and powers back during down wind.

Special attention to Security:
- 2 reefs to reduce efficiently the surface and adapt the sail to a large range of conditions. 
- Clew point  with strong straps on reefs, to ease the reefing process – compatible with different reef systems.
- High visibility  : Orange colour on the top for safety and be visible from far
- Adjustable fall nerve on each reefing position and high position.
- Window : allow a 360° clear view on water.

- Possibiliy to add buoyancy at the top of the sail (not including in the sail price) – several different types of floatation possible (mast head float, sqaure top sail float, along the luff...)


Modification on the boat
  : This sails does not need big modification  : haul system + cleat system.

Replace the standard hook by a haul system :
To be able to use the 2 reefs easily and to keep a good shape with an adequate tension in the halyard, we recommend to use a pulley system: fix the halyard at the top of the mast (use the hook hole for example), then go down in the head of the sail (block + shackle fixed to the sail), then return at the top of the mast as normal halyard way via the normal sheave and goes down to mast foot. You need to add a cleat there to fix the halyard and manage it easily. 
The halyard must be long (25 m) and strong in spectra for example !
