J/24 Mainsails

J/24 Mainsail TM-1

Featuring a powerful shape, the maximum leach profile increases helm and pointing ability. The reshaped upper portion results in a main sail that needs fewer and smaller adjustments, allowing you to focus on helming. When the main is eased in light air, it allows the head stay to sag more and adds depth to the genoa. When a puff comes, trim the main to tension the head stay and pull it slightly, flattening the genoa to its optimal shape. With the new TH-2 main and our tuning guide, this delicate balance is easy to find. Sail includes inked sail numbers, draft stripes, tube bag and J/24 Class Royalty.

J/24 Headsails

J/24 Crosscut "Pan Am" Class Jib (100%)

A proven winner, the Quantum class jib is a bulletproof sail designed to allow J/24 teams to switch more easily in the breeze range from the genoa. Our design provides enough power to keep up with the heavier crews, while still allowing the sail to perform well on the windiest of days. Includes draft stripes and tube bag.

J/24 Tri-Radial S.F. Class Jib (100%)

Built for 15+ knots, this sail is durable enough to handle the upper extreme while also being powerful enough for the occasional lull. It has proven itself fast, winning two worlds championships with extensive blade use. Sail includes draft stripes, tube bag and J/24 Class Royalty.

J/24 Genoa TG-1

A modification of our very successful tri-radial design, Technora provides the best of both worlds – a deeper sail for light winds and a relatively flatter sail when it gets windy. Technora is also the better choice for durability, handling flex (tacking and hitting the rig) well. Includes inked draft stripes, sail number, tube bag and J/24 Class Royalty.

J/24 Spinnakers

J/24 Full Radial Spinnaker (.75oz)

This legendary Quantum J/24 spinnaker design comes in Superkote 75. This design has proven to be extremely fast in all conditions. A snap to trim, our spinnaker is constructed with premium nylon for a well-rounded, all-purpose sail. Includes class royalty.

Travis Odenbach

Travis Odenbach rose to the top of the One Design circuit in multiple classes in a short amount of time. A native of Rochester who grew up sailing in the Rochester Yacht Club, his first race experience as a boy was on a Laser. As a member of a sail racing family, he crewed with his parents on their family C&C 37 R and later their Concordia 47.

At age 20 he bought himself a J22 and worked hard to have success on the race course. This led to his first job in the sailing industry with Waterline Systems. As a young sailor, he worked with experts from sail companies who helped him learn the business and fine tune his racing skills. It's this experience that drives Travis to do the work he does today. He now consults other sailors to help them have the best possible experience on the water and he loves being able to give back to the sport in this way.

His career has taken him from North Sails to Haarstick Sailmakers and now to Quantum Sails Rochester. During this time he has polished his skills as a one-on-one sales consultant who specializes in One Design sails and works with sailors all over the world. He is an accomplished member of Quantum's team of J/22, J/24, and J/70 class experts.

In the J/24 class, Travis has won the North Americans and finished in the top three multiple times at Nationals, North Americans, and Worlds. In the Beneteau First 36.7 class he's helped win three North American championships, and in the J/22 class he has multiple top-five finishes at the world and North American championships. Around the country you can find Travis winning many regional events driving his own J/24 or helping customers on J/70s, J/24s, J/22s, Ideal 18s, and other larger boats. Some of his career highlights included a division win on a Carkeek HPR 40 in the 2016 Annapolis-to-Newport regatta, second place at the 2017 J/22 North Americans, and third at the J/24 Worlds. Travis also enjoys Moth sailing.

Carter White

Carter White began sailing before he could walk, first on the family's Lightning and later on their J/24. He has experienced the beauty of the Gulf of Maine while cruising and racing its coast of Maine. And though Carter has sailed and raced on multiple continents and in hundreds of locations, he considers the Maine coast of one the best places in the world to sail.
 
An accomplished junior sailor, Carter competed in multiple National Championships, including the U.S. Sailing Bemis and Sears competitions. He then took a chance on an upstart college program at Hobart and William Smith Colleges where he majored in economics and joined an aggressive, young, and new sailing team. Carter helped build the program into a national contender almost immediately; by his senior year, the program was ranked number one in the country. Carter was named All American for outstanding performance in intercollegiate sailing competition. 
 
Following graduation, Carter worked for a local sailmaker in Maine. There he learned sail design, built and repaired sails, installed marine rigging, managed the small business, and helped it grow into the leading local source for sails, canvas, and rigging. Carter also sailed with many of his customers, helping them win major championships such as the PHRF New England Championships and Key West Race Week.
 
Carter took this broad experience and started a business running sailing regattas and providing custom apparel and marketing products to marine businesses and events. The company is still going strong today. He is excited to move to the next challenge with Quantum Sails and focus on his true passion of helping sailors get more out of their boats, whether on the race course, gunkholing down the coast, or making a long ocean passage.
