Lido 14

Quantum’s Lido 14 Class Sails are the benchmark for this venerable, family-friendly class. Our sails are fast, easy to use, and technologically superior to all others. The results make it clear: Quantum customers have dominated both club and National Championships for the past few decades. We are always available for tuning or racing related questions.

Lido 14 Mainsails


The goal of this proven fast design was to create a sail that has "easy speed." Because Lido racing isusually on short courses, there isn't much time to spend with finicky sails that are hard to trim. The JM-1 Class Mainsail has been developed to work in harmony with the L-7 Jib. Our main has a twist profile on the leech that allows it to be sheeted harder without stalling. This tightens the headstay and improves pointing. The mainsail panel layout utilizes a rocked panel plan to limit stretch, creating a sail that is both stable and highly durable. This approach has created a flatter sail shape for easier trim in the drifters, while still remaining powerful for heavier teams and medium winds. The sail comes with threetapered epoxy battens that have been placed to maximize roach. The main has a leech telltale, inlaid vision window, roll bag, insignia, and your choice of color for the sail number and draft stripes.

George Szabo

George grew up in San Diego racing Stars, Lasers and Snipes. As a kid, he made sails for his model boats before eventually taking a part-time job with Quantum during high school and college. He came on full-time in 1993 as a sailmaker and designer.

Using the latest computer design programs, George is able to create the fastest, most efficient sails for smaller One Design boats. This technology, combined with his intimate understanding of One Design sailing, allows him to create the most versatile sails available. The San Diego loft designs a variety of One Design sails, including Thistle and Lido 14, but their specialties are Olympic Class Star and Snipe boats.

George is the 2009 Star World Champion, as well as an 21-time National/North American Champion. In addition to his sail-making abilities and wins, he is also an accomplished keelboat tactician and trimmer.
