Laser cut for perfection and hand sewn for detail, the CF-2 Tri-Radial is designed with a round entry and straight exit for maximum speed, durability, and maneuverability. It excels in all conditions due to its interchangeable battens. Constructed with a blend of high-quality Dimension Polyant fabric, this sail will retain its perfect shape regatta after regatta.

J/70 Spinnakers

J/70 Spinnaker F6 - Dynakote 75

The F-6 Dynakote 75 Spinnaker is the ultimate all-purpose sail. Based on the same popular F-6 design, this sail is constructed with a softer, non-absorbent, grand prix material. The F-6 design is known for its excellent soaking mode and great reaching speed. Combine that with the malleable, flexible material, and you get a more forgiving sail that keeps the boat fast and nimble, even when conditions get rough. And since its Dynakote material doesn't absorb water, the sail stays light even as the bow powers through waves. This sail comes in multiple colors and combinations to help you stand out on the race course.

INCLUDES: Drawstring sail bag, royalties (J/70 and ISAF).

This product may be ordered through your local rep or a class expert.

J/70 Spinnaker F6 - Airx 650

Quantum's F-6 spinnaker is the go-to J/70 spinnaker for all-purpose sailing. The sail's popularity comes from its excellent soaking mode combined with great reaching speeds. Constructed with AIRX 650, this spinnaker is fast, responsive, and flexible, yet stiff enough to love a good pump down the waves. The sail comes in multiple colors and combinations. Don't forget to ask about adding your custom graphic or logo for maximum style points.

INCLUDES: Drawstring sail bag, royalties (J/70 and ISAF).

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. He also enjoyed sailing Moths from 2014-2017.

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 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, Third at J/24 Worlds in 2013 and 2015, and 2nd at J/22 worlds in 2021. He enjoys sailing his Melges 15 when he is not working.

A One-Design specialist, Carlo designs many sails for Melges 20, 24, and 32 classes, Garda and European lakes monotypes, and ORC and IRC offshore boats.

When Fernando Sallent was 10 years old, a friend of his father bought him an Optimist dinghy. From then on Fernando was hooked. As an adult, his first business venture was Technik Boats, a small Optimist shipyard, but it was the physics of sailing that really intrigued him. “I always had a passion for finding a way to make boats go faster,” he said.

That passion led him to La Industrial Velera Marsal, a local sailmaker who made all of his sails by hand. Fernando worked there learning the basics of sailmaking while also running Technick Boats. After taking a year off to serve in the military, he decided to leave Technick and joined Toni Tio Sail Loft. Toni Tio was only designing cruising sails at the time, so Fernando came on board to lead the One Design section of the company.

In 1996, Toni and Fernando visited the Quantum Annapolis loft, and in 2000 they joined the Quantum Sails team. Fernando continues to design One Design sails as he works to help his clients improve on the water. “I love seeing how sailors do better when the product is improved,” he said. “I love the fine tuning of boats and sails on the water.”

An accomplished sailor, Fernando also works as a coach for many teams. He coached the 470 women’s world, Olympic, and European champions in 1992 and the 470 women’s world champions in 1995. Since 2000, he has advised the Norwegian, Swedish, Swiss, and Spanish Olympic teams.

Adrien de Belloy

Adrien de Belloy started sailing at four years old, traveling around the North Atlantic with his parents on a boat they built themselves. As a family, they spent a year sailing across the Atlantic, from France to the Caribbean to New York and back. By the time Adrien was 12, he’d moved on to competitive racing. “I loved the sense of freedom, responsibility, team work and being out in nature,” he said. “Nowadays I still love reaching to the horizon and the technical aspect of it. I’m always searching for a way to go faster and trim better.”

With a degree in yacht and powercraft design from Southampton Solent University, Adrien joined Quantum Sails Barcelona as a sail designer in 2007. He left the loft in 2010 to work as a self-contractor for Quantum while he built the boat he and his wife sailed around the world, covering 44,000 miles from 2011-2013. He continues to design for Quantum at the France loft, and is back to racing IRC, Soto 40, and more.

Designing sails for everything from dinghies to super yachts, racers to cruisers, Adrien loves his work. “I love the never-ending improvement,” he said. “Getting to see my designs at sea, then analyzing them to keep on adapting to every situation.”

Working with the team at Quantum gives him the support and resources he needs to design the best sail for every sailor. “Working for Quantum means being part of a great team that is aiming for success at every endeavor,” said Adrien. “We work twice as hard to prove that we are ready for the next challenge.”
