Ullman Sails Race Series sails are custom-designed for each boat with a fast, efficient shape that translates into speed and performance on the racecourse. Race Series sails feature lightweight construction with an emphasis on extended performance life. The sails are also easier to adjust and control as the wind strength and sea conditions change, allowing you to keep the boat balanced and sailing fast.
Cloth Selection and Performance
Ullman Sails Race Series sails are available in specialty race Dacron and a selection of race laminates. The Ullman Sails team will work with you to determine the best materials that match your racing needs, boat specifications, budget, and performance expectations.
Race Dacron: Ullman Sails uses premier quality race Dacron – low-stretch, lightweight material with excellent bias control. Coupled with Dacron’s unparalleled durability and longevity, Ullman Sails makes a sturdy, high-performance sail. Available in cross-cut and radial constructions.
Race Laminates: Race laminates offer additional performance. Laminates have better dynamic load management and weigh less than Dacron. The panel layout of laminates allows for more stability in the draft position, giving greater control and power on the racecourse.
FiberSport: These sails utilize the same technology as our FiberPath GP Race product from the GP Race Series. Featuring polyester, rather than aramid, carbon, or vectran fibers, FiberSport offers racers some performance advantages of a FiberPath custom membrane at a more competitive price.
FiberPath Plus: These custom membrane sails are built to be lightweight, low stretch, and strong like the Ullman Sails GP Race Series, but with an additional light, rugged ‘skin’ (distinct from Taffetas) that provides abrasion resistance with minimal weight gain.
The Ullman Sails Advanced Design Team has extensive experience designing and testing for a range of successful projects including Olympic campaigns; the America’s Cup; numerous One Design classes; and rating rules. Using the SMAR AZURE® “AzureProject 3-D design software, computer analytics and two-boat testing, Ullman Sails is able to optimize every sail shape for outstanding, long-term performance. Their efforts have consistently produced fast, efficient sail shapes that produce winning results on every type of racecourse worldwide.
