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.

The T-Hound / mast rotator / spreader bar fitting that you may have seen in action on DN 5224 (the neon yellow boat at the 2007 Worlds) is now available. There are a number of makes and models in use but if I may say so, this version is pretty sweet. It all but eliminates mast inversions, is very clean aerodynamically and allows full articulation at the shroud attachment. They look good too! Available to fit either T-Hound (Kent) or tang-style (Sherry) mast hounds. Designed for DNs but at least one is in use on a Jet 14. We have them for sale- Call or email for pics and price!
