Training Sails

In 2017 we added another product range to our ever growing range of sailing equipment in the form of training sails for a few of the more popular sailing boats.

Sailing Chandlery now offer training sails for the Laser, Laser Radial, Laser 4.7, Topper, 29er, Nacra 15 and Nacra 17.

If you are not attending class official events then training sails are a great way to save some cash. They can also be used in between official class events for your time on the water club racing or training, this will allow you to keep your official class sails fresh and event ready.

For the Laser there are three types of sail available, it's very important to review the types and the differences as only Laser class official sails can be used at Laser Class events. Laser Performance have also added confusion by calling one of the sail types 'Class Compliant', these are not class legal for events. Here is an overview:

  • Official Class Legal - come with the red button and are the only sails which can be used at Laser class events
  • Class Compliant - the same material and shape as the class legal sails but without the red button
  • Training Sail - Made from a lesser quality dacron to the same shape - perfect for club racing or training

View our range of Laser sails through our website.

Here are the direct links to our Laser training sails:

With our sails we've also tried to make improvements to make them a little longer lasting than class ones where possible. For example, many 29er sailors find when they leave their jibs flogging in the boat park they don't last very long. With our jib we've made it from a stronger material, still to the same shape and style with orange detailing but it should last longer.

If you have any questions about any of our training sails please do give us a call or drop us an e-mail.
