C&C 30 One Design Class Info

It is incredibly exciting to be involved with hot, new one design introductions. The challenge of figuring out what makes a boat tick, learning how it should be set up and sailed, determining the sail design and rig tuning formulas all make for an enormously satisfying project. It is a process that is in the very DNA of Quantum Sails. Since our formation, Quantum has been at the forefront of sail development in every major offshore one design class, including the C&C 30.

Development started in the summer of 2014 with the first set of test sails built for Hull #1. We are now on version 4.0 of most sails. There have been five one design regattas sailed beginning with a nine-boat fleet at the NYYC Annual regatta in June 2015. Needless to say their was plenty of tension during the first lineups. It is great to theorize about sail design, rig tuning, trim and setup, but no matter how good computational models have gotten, the moment of truth happens when the first gun goes off, and you find out if you were really on the right track.

Well, that question has been answered. Resoundingly, in fact. In the five regattas, 42 races have been sailed. Thirty-eight have been won with Quantum sails. Every regatta has seen Quantum supply the power to the top podium finishers. A coordinated effort by the sailing teams and the design team has produced a clear speed advantage. Working together has accelerated the learning process, with every Quantum team benefiting from the lessons learned by others. Using identical class sails Quantum teams finished 1st, 2nd, and 4th in the 11 boat fleet at Quantum Key West race week, the first official class event of 2016.

Rig tuning and setup has been refined from initial assumptions and a new tuning matrix is available along with detailed lessons from the regatta covering all aspects of making the boats go. Dave Flynn, Scott Nixon, Jason Currie and Farley Fontenot have all now spent time on the boat and are available to help everyone get up to speed.

C&C 30 One Design Mainsails

C&C 30 One Design Fusion M Mainsail

Verson 4.0 of Quantum's class mainsail features a new luff curve for more versatile shape control, better vertical distribution of camber and improved twist profile. Utilizing a 15,000 DPI mid-leech fiber network of carbon and black (UV treated) aramid fibers encapsulated in matte film, the square head roach profile of this mainsail provides the best balance between area and twist to ensure proper helm and leeway targets at designed rake. Shaping and rig tuning targets were developed in conjunction with Mark Mills and Hall Spars. The grand prix batten layout with custom epoxy battens helps maintain shape and provides durability.

STANDARD FEATURES:  Inked sail numbers and draft stripes, custom battens, full-length Grandprix Turtle Bag, custom C&C graphic, spreader patches, visibility window in foot, spreader window for jib trim. Price includes class royalty. This sail is also available with Lightskin, a filament-fortified exterior film for even greater durability; please contact a class expert or your local loft for this option.

C&C 30 One Design Headsails

C&C 30 One Design Fusion M Code 1 Jib

FUSION M J1 V3.0

Version 3.0 has gotten slightly fuller and more powerful than earlier versions with particular attention paid to the entry. The entry has been made deeper to increase steering groove and make it easier on the driver and to balance the entry from bottom to top now that we understand how the sail is being sheeted athwartships. It is made with 9,000 DPI carbon/black aramid fibers with a matte film, the primary wind range of the Fusion M™ carbon/aramid J1 Light sail is 4-10 knots. A sea-state dependent sail, it can be used in up to 12 knots in a lumpy venue whereas the J2 might work best in 8 knots in a flat venue. With sail button restrictions in mind, the robust membrane allows for the sail to be taken up range slightly, as well as providing greater longevity. The sail is sized as big as the rules and sheeting envelope allow.  

STANDARD FEATURES:  Inked draft stripes, "T" ring clew fittings, custom battens, and full-length Grand Prix Turtle Bag. Price also includes class royalty.

C&C 30 One Design Fusion M Code 2 Jib

FUSION M™ J2  V4

The Fusion M™ Carbon/Technora J2 Medium is the workhorse of our sail inventory. The dense fiber matrix of carbon and black aramid fibers, 14,000 DPI at mid-leech, in matte film ensures durability. Recent upgrades include improved geometry to optimize sheeting and a new fiber layout. 

Designed for maximum lead inboard, the sail has a straight exit and can be sheeted hard. Its wide, forgiving entry and powerful overall shape, combined with Quantum's rig tuning matrix, make it fast and easy to steer in flat or bumpy conditions. Designed for the widest possible range, it can be used from 8-19 knots.

STANDARD FEATURES: Inked numbers, inked draft stripes, "T" ring clew fittings, custom battens, class royalty and full-length Grand Prix Turtle Bag. This sail is also available with Lightskin, a filament-fortified exterior film for even greater durability

C&C 30 One Design Fusion M Code 3 Jib

FUSION M™ J3  V3

With a 10% area reduction from the maximum size jibs, the Fusion M™ carbon/aramid J3 heavy design strikes a careful balance between heavy weather and usable proportions. 17,000 mid-leech DPI of carbon and black aramid with a matte film make it slightly overbuilt, rugged, and reliable. Completely redesigned for 2016, J3 is now flatter overall with slightly reduced head area and a lower clew.  

The shaping is powerful, with deep, forgiving entry to help steering and provide punch through waves. Exit and twist profile make for easy de-powering to keep the boat on its feet. Range should be 17-25 knots.  

STANDARD FEATURES: Inked on numbers and draft stripes, "T" ring clew fitting, custom battens, class royalty and full length Grand Prix Turtle Bag. This sail is also available with Lightskin, a filament-fortified exterior film for even greater durability.

C&C 30 One Design Spinnakers

C&C 30 One Design A1.5 Asymmetrical

A 1.5 Asymmetrical  V4

A new design for 2016, the A1.5 VMG AP Asymmetrical is nearly full-sized, to be used for VMG running in light air (less than 10 knots) and bow-up reaching in windier conditions, or when control is an issue. Initial molds were derived from successful Melges 32 sails, which have undergone extensive testing and trial by fire. Not a pure VMG, the Airx 650 A1.5 hybrid is optimized for apparent wind angles from 70-130 and strong enough to be used in any condition. 

STANDARD FEATURES: Grand Prix Duffle, single patch take-down line system and inked numbers. Price also includes class royalty.

C&C 30 One Design A2 Asymmetrical

A2 Asymmetrical V3

The A2 AP/Runner maximum-sized sail is designed as a pure runner for use in wind speeds 9-16 knots. This is the sail for bow-down mode. 

​In keeping with the high performance aspects of the boat, a careful balance between luff and leech areas allows for soaking deep in 10-16 knots, but still allows for a bow-up mode in 16+ knot planing conditions. Lots of entry allows for generous sheet eases and wide steering groove without collapsing. Optimized for apparent wind angles from 135-150, the Airx 650 sail is strong enough to be used in any 
condition. 

STANDARD FEATURES: Grand Prix Duffle, single patch take-down line system, inked sail numbers. Price also includes class royalty.
