Fresh shipment of 1D sails has arrived:

  • 1D F Speed, battens, number and bag $1221.00
  • 1D Power Gold, battens, numbers and bag $1221.00
  • 1D Power Gold with Cambers*, battens, numbers and bag $1494.00

*Camber is a modification to the batten pocket. Smoother design to cut down turbulence created by the current pocket.

Northwind had the sails shipped from Poland rolled to avoid any folds.
This method increased the shipping cost but these sails are worth it.
Historically the 1D Sail has stood up very well and are currently the most cutting edge that Karol Jablonski has created.
I will not fold these sails for shipment. Northwind should be able to pass them off to some of the Eastern area sailors heading to the North Americans.
