CAL Sails from Ullman Sails

CAL Sails from Ullman Sails

Custom Axis Laminate Sails or referred to as CAL sails are continuing to gain popularity due to incredible shape holding and durability.  The value of these sails is becoming legendary.  Priced just slightly more than a Dacron sail, sailors get the low stretch and high strength of a Vectran cruising laminate.  Although a cruising option and mostly on larger boats because of the weight some have decided to use them for racing with great success.

CAL Sails are built with 100% U.V. blocking film laminated inside to protect the Vectran yarns to guarantee the long life of the sail.  The multiple thread line load path of the Vectran yarns capture all the loads of the sail to keep the sail smooth and the designed shape of the sail over a wider range of wind conditions.  This translates to less heeling of the boat and less weather helm.  It also reduces the need to reef making sailing safer and easier by keeping your family off of the deck when the wind is high.

The diagram to the right shows the laminate schedule for the CAL Sails.  With high pressure lamination and a mildew inhibitor the CAL sails make the best value in cruising sails over any other sail by far.  Remember these sails are nearly the same price as Dacron cross cut sails!

Go to the Order Sail page on this web site to ask for more information on CAL Sails.
