UK Sailmakers Types of Sails



Main Sail


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...

Genoa


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...

Spinnaker


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...

Cruising Spinnaker


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...

Storm Sails


Any boat going offshore needs to have strong, well made storm sails. UK Sailmakers
will not only custom make these sails for your boat, but you local UK rep will help teach
you how to use them. More...


Code Zero Sails


The Code Zero is a cross between a genoa and an asymmetrical spinnaker that is
used for sailing close to the wind in light air. These sails are a must for distance
races. More...
