J/24 Mainsails

J/24 Dacron AP Class Mainsail

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.

Tri-Radial Technora Genoa (150%)

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.

Terry Flynn, a third generation sailmaker, started out in Annapolis, Maryland, where he developed a great foundation for both cruising and racing. He grew up on the family sailboat, cruising all over the Chesapeake Bay. Before he was 15 years old, he made 10 offshore deliveries from New York to Florida.

As a racer, Terry has competed in the Newport-Bermuda, the old SORC, Annapolis-Newport, and Trans-Superior races. His One Design credits include four J/22 North Americans and a World Championship. He’s also won North Americans, Nationals, and Midwinter races on 420s, Lightnings, J/24s, J/80s, J/30s, and Cadets, as well as winning One Ton, ¾ Ton, and ½ Ton Championships.

Growing up around sailors, Terry naturally fell into sailmaking and has never looked back. He’s worked his way up through the ranks, doing everything from bench work to design during his 37 year career. Terry has been with Quantum since the beginning, using his experiences to make sails that help customers improve their racing result or simply get more enjoyment out of their boats.

Alejandro Irigoyen

Alejandro Irigoyen started sailing when he was 12 years old. His father was a keen sailboat racer at the Yacht Club Argentino, and Alejandro spent his weekends racing and living aboard the family’s wooden S&S Finisterre. By the time he graduated high school, Alejandro knew he wanted to dedicate his life to sailing, so he started studying yacht design.

He started his sailmaking career in 1982 working for Hood, before starting his own Sobstad loft. In 2001, Alejandro joined the Quantum Sails family. “It was a natural decision,” he said. “I shared the same view and goals as the founding group.”

Though he’s sailed in various classes, Alejandro’s expertise includes Optimist, Cadet, 470, Snipe, J/24, J/70, J/105, Soto 33, and Soto 44 classes. Whether he’s sharing his class knowledge and experience, or helping customers organize their campaigns and training, Alejandro’s passion for excellence provides the best service, products, and support for his customers.
