The Layout Philosophy

For many years full batten mains have been the norm for cruising boats and this continues to be true. The full length battens add overall durability to the sail by reducing flogging, and contribute to supporting the mainsail fabric. However, having all the battens full length unnecessarily increases the weight of the sail and removes some of the shape controlling ability through the lower portion. With full battens down low, the ability to change the camber of the sail in that area is impaired by the stiffness of the battens, and they also inhibit the reefing process.

The Doyle 2+2 Mainsail has a durability advantage provided by the stability of the full top battens and the performance advantage of varying shape because of standard length lower battens.
