The ability to create lift through efficient sail shape is the essence of an upwind headsail. As with the mainsail, lift is generated when the camber, or the curve of the sail, creates smooth but differing air flow speed on the windward and leeward sides of the sail.

In different apparent wind speeds and angles, different sail sizes and shapes will be needed to keep the boat at its optimal angle of heel and speed. 


Our superior engineered sails, designed by sail designers who understand how sails get used, offer a better, more durable sail.


For sailors who desire a blend of performance, durability and value, panelled sails in a radial construction make very cost efficient, high-performing sails.


Stratis sails deliver the ultimate in sail performance, reliability and style through custom construction, allowing for stronger, lighter and smoother sails.
