North DSD Thistle Mainsail
The DSD mainsail is a relatively full sail up top with flatter lower sections and the draft center. This sail is very popular with the folks that sail inland lakes and flatter water conditions, though it has had great success on open water.
The DSD mainsail is built out of 165sq from Dimension/Polyant that proves to be a very durable option, while the finish offers great strength, thus keeping the leech nice and straight through all conditions. With a radial lower section, the lower leech stays static as the mast goes through a wide range of bend through the conditions.
You can add our latest "Special Reef Package" to your Thistle main. With all the measurements and details assembled with the aid of a couple of Thistlers who are experienced experts at where reefs should be placed, we have the ideal setup for those who want to reduce area when its blowin' the dog off the chain! If you sailing short handed or a bit light, this new reef system will help you handle the Thistle easier and more safely. The package includes not only the reef reinforcements 17" above the foot, but also the extra windows enabling you to see other boats and the leech of your jib!
