North J/22 Sails in South Africa

The North J22 sails offered currently for top class racing are identical to those used by 2013 World Champ, Allan Terhune,  when he won the 2013 event!
The #1 sails at the Worlds were the standard North inventory used by Allan and 9 of the top 10 overall finishers.
Check out the details below:

M7 Mainsail

#1 2013 Worlds

The new M7 mainsail is modeled after the very successful NB-1 Main. The M7 has a radial head section to smooth out the area of the top batten, making the sail easier to trim. The M7 also features a radial clew patch to strengthen the clew and keep the sail smoother and faster! The beauty of the M7, is that you will not have to change your tuning!

Mainsail standard features:

  • Vision Window
  • Leech telltales
  • Spreader window
  • Epoxy battens
  • Long roll sail bag
  • Class insignia
  • Sail numbers

Big Foot All-Purpose Jib

#1 2013 Worlds


The Big Foot Jib is also constructed with a “2 Step” panel construction. The panels utilize a firm coated Dacron material with a heavier cloth weight in the head and foot sections for added durability.

The Big Foot Jib design takes advantage utilizing a round powerfull entry and powerful shape. It’s our wide-groove model that is, without a doubt, the most forgiving sail to steer and trim in all wind ranges.

Jib standard features:

  • Vision window
  • Luff & Leech telltales
  • Epoxy battens
  • Long roll sail bag

FR-1 Full Radial Spinnaker


#1 2013 Worlds

A slightly flatter head combined with a fuller, powerful lower section truly helps the sail perform on the broadreach/run courses predominately sailed in J/22 regattas.

Features the maximum projected area possible!
