FiberPath Sport Makes an EntranceMon, 23rd Nov 2009
By Chuck Skewes
The new FiberPath Sport has made it’s entrance with a Bang, the bang of the finishing gun. Using the FiberPath Sport the for the first time the Wylie Wabbit “Wild Bunch” Won it’s class in the San Diego Hot Rum. The prototype sail was launched just hours before the race and used on the long beat up to the finish. This is a great start for a great product.
The FiberPath Sport is a less expensive alternative to the FiberPath GP that has been winning races around the world the last few years. The FiberPath Sport uses Twaron instead of Technora along with a mostly polyester scrim. This is a great low stretch strong sail for boats from 30 feet and under. It makes the load path sail technology available to the smaller boats where the FiberPath GP sails price point was too high and could not take advantage of the higher modulus fibers. When testing is 100% finished this winter FiberPath Sport will be available world wide. The price savings is about 20% and less expensive than most paneled sails.
FiberPath has become a leader in load path sails technology and is exclusive of Ullman Sails. This is why we always say “We Make the Best and Fix the Rest”.
