Doyle's headsails offer some subtle refinements to what has become the basic principle of modern sail engineering, the concept of aligning fabric thread line with sail loadings. Combined with the best of modern composite materials, this structure produces a sail which is exceptionally light, yet strong.
A cruising code sail can often be the missing link between a genoa and a gennaker for performance cruisers. Gain power in light air and performance in a wider range of angles, both reaching or running. The cruising code sail is lightweight and easy to handle due to the light weight cable at the leading edge of the sail, providing greater efficiency to your cruising.
Covering the entire range from broad running to tight reaching, Doyle’s downwind sails allow you to realize the full downwind potential of your boat. Designed in a CFD environment for optimal efficiency, and coupled with testing in the real world, these sails maximize projected area, and utilize construction techniques that capture the cloth’s strengths and ensure stable flying shape.
StackPack is a mainsail handling system comprised of a fully battened mainsail with integral lazy jacks and a cover that opens automatically to accept the sail as it is lowered.
The Doyle Cradle Cover was developed by Doyle Sails so that a StackPack can be easily removed from the main. If the main needs repairs, a new main can be put on and the Cradle Cover reinstalled.
