Doyle Sails | ETCHELLS




Doyle Etchells AP and AP-2 Mains feature all Epoxy RBS battens standard.

  • AP-2 6 oz Main - The AP-2 main is designed for the newer stiffer mast and features less designed twist than the AP main (flies more open) and as a result can be sheeted harder for better pointing. It is easy to depower with mast bend and powers up when the backstay is eased.
  • AP Main - The popular AP main, originally a 2006 world champion model, still fits an older softer mast better than the AP-2 since it has more luff curve high and more designed twist (tolerates more mast bend and bend high.)

We now offer six jibs: the LM Radial, MH Radial, 270 MHL, 280 DCM, 280 NLM, and 6.8 DCH. All jibs have adjustable spectra leech and foot lines as well as all radial corner reinforcing.


While we offer many jib options it is important to pair the jib for the venue you will sail most often. The DCM is a well proven jib that's easy to use and excellent for flatter water venues with a wind range of 5-18 knots, like Miami. Our MHL (Marblehead Light) is our newest jib made from a lighter cloth and fuller than the DCM, therefore more powerful all around with a range of 0-13 knots. The 270 MHL can be matched with a 6.8 DCH.

The DCH is a flatter jib made from strong 6.8PK and has range from 12-30 knots. All of these jibs can be cut with a shorter leech to allow for in-hauling. The DCH tends to get a 25mm shorter or max leech since you don’t inhaul with the jib in breeze over 14 knots.

Etchells jibs are now available with optional shorter leech lengths for inboard sheeting over the edge of the cuddy. All of our jibs are available in the standard max (long) leech, 25mm or 50mm shorter.


  • AP Radial Runner - We recommend the new AP Radial Runner for most conditions running in 7-20 knots.
  • VMG Radial - The VMG Radial spinnaker is made from 32 gram Airx 500 and optimized for 4 to 14 knots. The VMG is a minimum head girth spinnaker that is flatter in the head and more open in the foot for lightly loaded downwind sailing. The lower girth, leech length and head to mid-foot are all near max dimensions. The sail is designed for best VMG while sailing gybing angles downwind and lighter running conditions.
