Tape-Drive® Extends Wind Range

A sail's wind range is a function of two things; its ability to lift and fill in light air and its ability to hold its designed shape when highly loaded. The lightness of Tape-Drive®sails not only widens their wind range but lighter sails are faster because they create less pitching and heeling. They also tack faster and are easier to handle. Reducing the total weight of your working sail inventory can also make your boat faster.
