Snipe Mainsails

Snipe Mainsail P-4

The P-4 B is expertly crafted to be the ultimate all-around power sail. Designed with a fuller head and middle section, heavier crews and light-air sailors can rest assured that they’ll have the extra speed and performance required to lead the fleet. Th P-4 B is built with premium quality Dimension Polyant fabric to make the sail rugged, durable, and inexpensive. We’ve added a radial head reinforcement to make this sail even more resilient. The middle and lower sections of the sail are cross cut for shape retention and longevity. The P-4 B performs exceptionally well when seas get rough. This sail’s deeper draft gives sailors the confidence and ability to sail quickly in even the lightest of conditions.

INCLUDES: Battens, vision windows, roll bag, royalties, telltales, tackline.

Snipe Mainsail C-5

With its focus on performance, it's no wonder the C-5 B is our most popular mainsail. The sail has a good amount of control added to its tip and a good balance of power in the middle. The C-5 B is built with premium quality Dimension Polyant fabric and a radial head reinforcement to make the sail last longer. The middle and lower sections of the sail are cross cut for shape retention and longevity. Designed with a fuller mid-section and a flatter head, this sail gives you the power to soar through the lulls, while also offering the utmost control in puffs.

INCLUDES: Battens, vision windows, roll bag, royalties, telltales, tackline.

Snipe Mainsail X-1

Ideally suited for normal-to-lighter weight Snipe teams, the new X-1 Radial offers a versatile, flatter, and smoother design that will deliver results on the racecourse. Because the flatter shape is more responsive to input from the aft puller and outhaul, the sail finds more power in lighter wind ranges. In medium-to-strong breeze, the sail flattens out and twists more easily. The X-1 is constructed of premium Dimension-Polyant cloth for durability and sail shape retention.

INCLUDES: Battens, vision windows, roll bag, royalties, telltales, and tackline.

INCLUDES: Battens, vision windows, roll bag, royalties, telltales, tackline

Snipe Jib RSJ-8B

With multiple world championship wins under its belt, the versatile RSJ-8 B is the perfect headsail for any condition.

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.

Carter Cameron

Growing up in Charleston, South Carolina, Carter fell in love with sailboat racing at a young age. He sailed Optis and Club 420s but his favorite racing boat was the Lightning. He sailed for the College of Charleston where he was coached by legendary sailmaker Greg Fisher. Carter was a skipper and starting heavy crew at Charleston and was nominated for the Robert H. Hobbs Sportsman of the Year in 2019 for college sailing. It was during his time at the College of Charleston that Carter realized his passion for the art of sailmaking and the science behind sail design.

Carter graduated in 2019 and moved to Annapolis to work with Quantum Sails as a service sailmaker. He quickly integrated himself into the Mid-Atlantic one-design sailing scene, excelling in the Snipe and Lightning classes. Carter also has experience with Viper 640s, E Scows, and high school and collegiate dinghies.

After spending 2 years at the loft in Annapolis, Carter moved to Quantum Sails San Diego to be a One Design Sailmaker under Mark Reynolds and George Szabo. In San Diego, Carter focuses on the production, R&D, and sales of One Design Sails with the goal of providing the best sails to our clients.
