The cloth we use for producing Mirror sails is RSQ Polykote rip stop, a sailcloth best used in a cross cut panel layout. The thread lines and bias stretch allow the sail designer to shape the panels to stand up in the light winds while the inevitable stretch can be utilised to depower the sail. With the panels running into the luff at an angle the bias on the cloth allows the Cunningham to work effectively. With the mast having no lower support careful attention has to be paid to the lower luff to ensure the sail does not over starve in high winds while not being too full in the lighter breezes.
Sails are available for both the new all alloy one piece mast or the gaff rig.
The sail comes complete with numbers, battens and long sail bag.
*All Hyde Sails items are made to order and shipped from our loft in Cebu. We aim to make and ship orders within 2-3 weeks of orders placed. For order status updates please email firstname.lastname@example.org
