Features
& Benefits

  • Blade mast-pocket construction features mast panel and mast-pocket sides (3 layers) that are tensioned directly (all 3 layers under tack pulley webbings)– therefore downhaul tension is equalized between the mast panel and the mast pocket resulting in the Raceboard Blade’s firm, clean, easy-rotating leading edge
  • 4 mil Dimension Polyant monofilm body panels – proven superior performance
  • Tubed battens with varying carbon content according to performance.
  • Metallic cam interfaces– MCIs eliminate contact point degradation characteristic of cam designs without MCIs
  • Exposed tack (no mast pad) and boomhole, facilitating adjustable downhaul assemblies
  • Xply batten pockets that alternate sail sides... using similar material for the batten pocket as the body material minimizes the asymmetric character of applied batten pockets. Pockets made with laminates allow the batten to be centered. These features combine to maintain rotation symmetry. In contrast, same-side dacron pockets promote assymetrical rotation.

Pro tips

What do you like about the Raceboardblade LW?

A wonderful, powerful, light, and yet durable sail, perfect for light wind conditions. Your best choice ever for winds up to 12 knots, although it can easily handle stronger winds. Play with all the possible settings, and you’ll be surprised on its wind range.

What do you like about the Raceboardblade 2018?

Your choice for medium to strong winds. Very light on your arms, but incredibly powerful, it will definitely help you to start sailing upwind just on your fin. A must have sail for more than 15 knots, and a wonderful machine as the wind gets stronger. It feels like you just want more and more wind!
