North Windsurfing

North Sails 3Di exemplifies outstanding value with industry leading shape holding and a longer service life compared to any other sailmaking technologies today. Proprietary software, engineering and construction methods allow 3Di sails to maintain their shape to an unprecedented level. There’s a reason why Volvo Ocean Race teams trust 3Di mainsail for 45,000+ miles around the world. Solo ocean racers are even circumnavigating the globe with 3Di sails for multiple laps. 3Di sails also have a lower cost of ownership than any other sail in the world.

3Di sails are significantly stronger and lighter than our competitor’s Laminate string sails. North Windsurfing is the only sailmaker who utilises ultralight unidirectional filament tapes to build sails from materials in their most basic elemental form.

The skin of the sail is the base of everything. This is where our 3Di technique comes into play. 3Di is built up from 5 sub features which are all incorporated and executed in one single production system. This allows us to create a three-dimensionally shaped sail from one single piece instead of the conventional sections cloth panels from batten to batten or panel to panel.

By gradually changing fiber density throughout the skin we made sure load and impact requirements are being met. This is the result of shaping the entire skin of the sail in 3D, eliminating the limitation of shaping under battens, which leaves you with the only windsurfing sail on the market that has a 100% shaped surface.

If this hasn’t gotten you excited yet, keep in mind that 3Di is used in making sails for the Volvo Ocean Race and the America’s Cup.
