Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and many sailmakers now offer variations on the StackPack invented by Doyle Sails.
The problem of the flogging mainsail was solved in 1989, when Robbie Doyle delivered his first StackPacks – a fully battened sail installed in a StackPack, that is designed to last for cruising sailors.
For Cruising Sailors, being able to control the sail easily and efficiently is one priority, protecting the sail from UV damage is another – the solution to both is a Doyle Sails StackPack.
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.
Cruising sailors are often faced with the dilemma of whether to sacrifice sail shape and quality for convenience. The StackPack is the solution for sailors wanting convenience without giving up performance or sail shape.
The StackPack also delivers a beautiful finished product that will look great on any boat. When the sail is up the cover is held tightly against the sail to maintain the sail's aerodynamics.
You will never again have to lower your sail and attach a sail cover. the StackPack is the most innovative, best performing and best looking Mainsail handling system available.

NO NEED FOR SAIL TIES
StackPack is a fully battened mainsail with integral lazy jacks and a cover that opens automatically to accept the sail as it is lowered. The cover and lazy jack system neatly flakes and holds the sail as it is lowered or reefed. The folds at the foot of a reefed mainsail also lie neatly in the StackPack cover, eliminating the need to tie off the excess fabric with ties.
EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR MAIN
With the sail completely stowed, the StackPack system presents a neat appearance and automatically protects the sail from harmful UV rays. While sailing, the integral cover lies flat against the foot of the sail for a clean aerodynamic effect.
MAINTAIN SPEED AND SHAPE
Cruising sailors are often faced with the dilemma of whether to sacrifice sail shape and quality for convenience. The StackPack is a solution for sailors wanting convenience without sacrificing speed and shape.
The StackPack also delivers a beautifully finished product that will look great on any boat. While designed principally as a mainsail furling system, StackPack works equally well with mizzens, staysails and other club-footed headsails.
