BIG BOAT SAILS
for the Soling 1 Meter

Windjammin Sails are 100% legal racing sails for the Soling 1 Meter. They are made of a single-panel Dacron and cut to comply with the Soling One Meter Sail Control Drawing. However, WJ Sails has taken these plain white sails one step further by printing the illusion that these sails incorporate the hottest revolution in sailmaking - membrane technology just like the high tech America's Cup Yachts and Volvo Ocean Racers. 

Membrane Technology is where sails are created over full-sized 3-dimensional molds by sandwiching a scrim cloth and a yarn layout between two thin Mylar films, then heat fusing everything to make a single cloth-like sail. The sails have fibers running up the leech, and tack fibers radiate out to the leech and many fibers from the clew radiate to points along the luff creating an interlocking structural grid that stretches less for its weight, holds its shape over a wider wind range, and retains its designed shape longer. This membrane technology has dominated sailboat racing worldwide. Membrane sails were used exclusively by the America's Cup and every team racing in both the 2002-2003 and 2005-2006 Volvo Ocean Race.

Over the past 4 years, WJ Sails has been looking for some way to print on Dacron. Because of the slippery coated finish Dacron has, nothing wanted to adhere to the surface. Graphic for the big cruising boats are currently printed and then cured under 800 degrees of heat. Problem with this process is the cloth shrinks around 8%, and not proportionately making it impossible to get a perfectly legal - lined up sail when done. Just recently WJ Sails found a process which does the job without heat and applies the ink just like a giant inkjet printer, but uses a special UV light to cure it.

So, WJ Sails took lots of pictures of different scrim mylars for the background, then drew to scale all the thread lines coming out of each corner of the sails, overlay some graphics, and after about 30 hours of design work, now have a very realistic 3DL America's Cup / Volvo Ocean Racer looking Sail for the Soling 1M.

Special Note:

New Sail Order are currently taking about 30 days to get shipped out!

I greatly apologize for this long lead time, but I work full time for The Sailors' Tailor, then come home to a wife and two boys. It is only after everyone else goes to be and weekends I can make sails... and I was totally swamped with orders in Feb. I hope to reduce these lead times but right this minute I am running 30 days behind.
