UK Sailmakers Types of Sails
Since the mainsail is the sail that you use most, it must be versatile
enough to handle strong winds, yet designed to perform well in lighter
winds, as well. Mainsails come in a wide variety of construction
methods, fabrics and batten configurations. More...
Genoas have the most affect on boatspeed of any upwind sail on a boat
since there is no mast in front of it disturbing wind flow. If only one
sail is in the budget, start by replacing the genoa. Racing sailors have
different genoas for different wind speeds. More...
For boats designed to wail downwind using traditional spinnaker poles or
sprits, UK Sailmakers offers a full line of spinnakers including
reaching, running and all purpose designs ranging from 0.5 oz. light air
chutes to storm spinnakers. More...
Every sailmaker has their own name for a pole-less asymmetrical cruising
spinnaker. At UK we call these sails “The Flasher” because they make
downwind sailing much more lively and fun. Not needing a spinnaker pole,
the Flasher is the perfect sail for shorthanded cruising. More...
One Design Sails
One-designs raise the bar on turning fun
into joy. You need every advantage you can find. Great sails are an
obvious factor. Stack the odds in your favor with fast, long-lasting
sails from UK-Halsey. More...

a must for distance
