E Scow Mainsails

E Scow Main AP

The Main AP is a user-friendly, easy to trim-and-go sail that will cover the full wind range from 0-25 knots. We have refined the luff curve to better fit the mast and made improvements to the flying shape giving this sail more power in the lower ranges while maintaining its ability to flatten with vang and cunningham as the wind builds.

E Scow Headsails

E Scow Jib AP

Based on the proven Melges E Jib AP design, this sail excels in 0-18 knots with the ability to go higher in range when needed or in wavy conditions. If you want a one-jib-program, this is the sail you need.

This jib features improved corner reinforcements utilizing the best materials on the market and a zipper luff. The zipper luff helps further smooth out the luff entry and allows the asymmetrical spinnaker to slide over the headstay more easily during jibes and takedowns as well as extend the life of both sails.

E Scow Jib Wavebuster

The Wavebuster is fuller than the AP with a slightly flatter head for more twist. This jib is designed as a powerful sail to bust through the wavy conditions we see on busy weekends or larger bodies of water where the waves and sloppy conditions build up. This sail is designed for 0-12 knots.

This jib features improved corner reinforcements utilizing the best materials on the market and a zipper luff. The zipper luff helps further smooth out the luff entry and allows the asymmetrical spinnaker to slide over the headstay more easily during jibes and takedowns as well as extend the life of both sails.

The M/H Jib is based on the AP design and constructed using stronger material to take this sail further up the range while maintaining a consistent shape and adding durability. The sail performs best in 12-25 knots.

Harry Melges III

Harry Melges III

Harry Melges III has worked in the sail making and sailboat building businesses his entire life. Growing up in a family business that supplies high-performance sails and sailboats, Harry was constantly thinking of ways to push the boundaries. How can we sail a boat faster, make a sail faster, or build a boat better?

Melges' mission has been to encourage more people to participate in the sport we love by bringing forward products that make boats easier and more fun to sail and improving quality and value with every new addition to the Melges line-up.

From a young age Harry spent much of his time crawling around the sail loft, learning from the artisans of the 70s and 80s how to make sails the "old school" way, something that is somewhat lost in our computer world. Taking that experience and blending it with today's technology has produced some of the fastest sails in our one-design classes through the years.

Harry is thrilled to be joining Quantum Sails, a company with values similar to Melges, and fully committed to promoting and growing the great sport of sailing while delivering the highest quality products at the best value. "I'm excited to be working with an American company that always makes the customers' needs its number-one priority."
