Ensign Mainsails

Ensign AP Class Mainsail

Our all purpose (AP) class mainsail is designed for durability and built from Dacron® with a firm, racing finish. This sail comes standard with vision and spreader windows, tapered RBS battens, roll bag, draft stripes, insignia, numbers, Cunningham, and clew slide. Price also includes class royalty. This sail is also offered in a softer Dacron® fabric with a more forgiving cruising finish; please contact a class expert or your local loft for this option. 

Ensign Headsails

Ensign #1 Genoa

This proven National Championship design can power up to be fast in light air, and with some backstay on will flatten out to be just as fast in heavy air. With a straight exit, our sails are powerful, and easy to trim. Our luff construction keeps the entry angle more uniform from tack to head - another competitive advantage! This sail has speed and point on the competition from 3-20 knots. A truly amazing All Purpose design.

Includes: telltales, vision window, draft stripes, class royalty and roll bag. (Furling Options Available)

Ensign #2 Genoa

The #2 is designed for the 18+ range when OD racing, or a perfect size and shape for the daysailing family. Being significantly flatter than the #1 Genoa it will keep the boat on its feet and makes it easy to drive without being overpowered when the puffs hit. You are driven forward, not sideways.

Includes: telltales, vision window, draft stripes, roll bag and class royalty. (Furling Options Available)
