Sabot CLASS INFO

For spectacular performance in light to medium air, our M-5 is the best choice. It was designed with the stiff "Gaudio" masts currently used by most A fleeters. It has proven fast, winning both the Junior Commodores Regatta (A division) and Corinthian Cup (A division). Available in 130 HTP cloth for added durability and shape retention in more wind, this sail is proving very versatile.

Quantum also offers an Econo sail for those who are just starting their sailing experience. It is full size, but made from a much more durable Dacron to withstand years of abuse.

Sabot Econo Main

The Econo mainsail is perfect for learning to race or for just day sailing and having fun. We use heavier cloth than in our race main so that it will last longer.

Brand new in 2011, the M-5 has proven very fast all season. It is a fairly flat sail designed with lots of twist. It won't over trim, and sends you forward instead of sideways. The M-5 is responsive to small changes in traveler and Cunningham, so you can set it up for any condition. Available in 2.6 oz for maximum performance or 3 oz to make sure your sail is fast for years to come!

Sabot Naples Sabot Radial Main

New for 2013 is the Quantum Radial Sabot Sail! This sail is made from our superlight 2.6 oz Dacron, but the Radial construction allows it to hold it's shape as the wind comes up. While other sails distort, the Radial sail accelerates the boat forward. Our Radial design is particularly well suited to aluminum masts since they bend more than Carbon and starve the boat of power.

When Mark Reynolds walked into the Opening Ceremonies at Sydney’s Olympic Games, he made U.S. Olympic yachting history as a four-time consecutive Olympic representative in the same event. Well-known as the “Star of the Star class," Mark has won two world championship titles ('00,'95) and three Olympic medals (1992 Gold,1988 Silver, 2000 Gold) in arguably the most competitive One Design class in the world.

Mark started sailing with his father (also a Star World Champion, sailing with Dennis Conner in 1971) when he was four. As a sophomore on the San Diego State University sailing team, he was an All American, leading the collegiate team to 2nd place finishes in 1974 and 1975 in the North American Dinghy Championships. A protégé of Dennis Conner, Mark started his first Olympic campaign in the Flying Dutchman class.

After the 1980 Olympic boycott, Mark started sailmaking at North Sails. Two years later, he left to start his own Sobstad loft, then joined Quantum Sails before the 2000 Olympics.

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.
