New mainsail specially made for RAID SAILING on 18 feet catamarans such as  Tiger / Alado / Hawk / Hobie 18 Formula, Pacific … 

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 who left quite far on board their beach catamaran, or in collaboration with Yvan Bourgnon, who will leave next October for a trip all around the world on a sport catamaran (we are developing his sails for this program), 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…) and adapted to enjoy sailing  far from the beach. 
 
The main innovation is the possibility to reduce the power of sail quickly so you can deal with wind sudden change and feel safe for a long raid or just with your Kids for an afternoon ride. 
 
 
SPECIFICATIONS :
 
An efficient sail :
- RDL Laminate cloth, reinforced grid, grey, treated against UV : 
 
 
- Flat cut, with a fathead which will twist efficiently thanks to Cunningham tension. 
- Composite tube battens equipped with screw tension adjusters Forward Sailing, very easy to use with a BTR key. 
 
 
- Tell Tale on sail and leesh.
 
Mainsail designed with a Safety philosophy  :
- 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.
 
 
- Leesh tensionner adjustable on each reef and at the bottom of the leesh
- Fathead  : colour orange to be visible from other boat from far.
 
 
- It’s possible to add buoyancy at the top of the sail (not including in the sail price) – different types of buoyancy possible to place in between 2 eyelets. 
 
 
It’s possible to add buoyancy at the top of the sail (not including in the sail price) – different types of buoyancy possible to place in between 2 eyelets. Modification on the boat  : This sails does not need big modification  : haul system + cleat: 
 
Replace the standard hook by a haul system :
To be able to use the 2 reefs easily but in order 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. And the halyard must be long and strong in spectra and 25m long !  
 
 
Sail complete with battens, tensioners and a bag.
