Re: Anyone buy laminate sails from China Sails?
There are all kinds of laminate sails available today - from the high-end 3DL molded racing sails from North to paneled cruising/club racing sails made with laminate cloth that looks a lot like woven cloth. You really have to decide how you are going to use the boat and then select a sail that meets those needs. A well made crosscut sail made with a high quality woven Dacron cloth is still a good choice for those that don't race and provides decent performance and long life. But some of the newer laminate cloths look like they will give better performance and very good life at not much of a price increase over woven cloth.
So what kind of laminate did you get a quote on?
