Loftsails dominates the international Raceboard class with the invaluable input and expertise of top-flight competitors such as Joao Rodrigues, Patrik Pollak, and Curro Manchon. Their collaboration with Monty Spindler, Loftsails' chief sail designer, ensures continuous development and improvement of their Raceboard designs.
With a team considered the strongest in the Raceboard class, they closely collaborate to refine and optimize Loftsails' Raceboard sails.
The ULW sail is an evolution of the highly successful LW design, enhanced to excel in light wind conditions. Stability is achieved through a 5-batten (3-cam) frame, while the profile has been meticulously fine-tuned to enhance performance both upwind and downwind. Additionally, the ULW boasts improved pumping response.
When the wind picks up, the HW 9.5 sail truly shines. Taking inspiration from the light and durable LW variant, the panel layout has been optimized and the profile finely tuned for a 7-batten (3-cam) frame. The result is a sail that delivers impressive speed and stability in winds exceeding 16 knots.
The Raceboardblade 9.5, a 6-batten (3-cam) sail, offers tactical flexibility on the racecourse. Positioned between the ULW and HW sails, it is specifically designed for the middle wind range, providing optimal performance and versatility.
All these designs showcase exceptional trim sensitivity within their respective intended wind ranges, ensuring maximum performance and responsiveness.
