The new N14-L18 Mainsail was developed for Mat Belcher by the North Sails Japan design team. Its powerful depth in the head gives an ideal twist for driving the boat to speed and for quick acceleration in planing conditions. Lower drag is created by tweaking the bottom half shape, which improves both speed and pointing performance under full power conditions. “I am very fond of the N14-L18 mainsail, which was developed during our last two Olympic campaigns. It is very special to us, we used this sail to win 6 world titles and 2 Olympic medals. The sail is fast in all conditions and easy to trim, which has enabled us to focus on racing and has helped us get out of a lot of tight situations.” – Mat Belcher, gold medalist in 2012 and silver medalist in 2016. One of the biggest advantages of buying a North radial is that you can customize it to match your mast bend profile, sailing weight, or target wind range.
