One Design‎ > ‎


Always remember that besides having a prepared boat, nothing replaces time on the water

The UK Texas J-70 sails were developed by combining the available information on this new class, alongside of our experience with light displacement sailboats and other J-class, using all UK Technology and the Azure sail design program (One of the most advanced sail design programs), allowing us a complete 3D view and multiple panel configuration,

J-70 sails testing at Galveston Bay May 2013

UK Texas designed an all-purpose mainsail utilizing cross-cut Dacron with radial corners and a radial Jib made of square Dacron, which was made for all conditions. We have also designed a heavy air radial Mainsail. The kite was designed by UK Chicago, and is constructed with AIRX Nylon. It was designed to sail deep while keeping on plane yet does not lose performance in light breeze. Since the J-70 has a stiff Carbon fiber mast, we chose a cross-cut panel configuration with radial corners for the AP Mainsail in order to have enough variation of shape for different wind conditions and a Tri-radial Jib with 245SQ Dacron in order to hold the shape for all conditions. Sails are made in USA at our loft in Houston TX.
