RHC Radial Mainsail

2016 & 2015 North Americans!

The RHC was developed with the goal to create a sail that matched the AP Main in speed and performance while adding durability and value. Using the North Sails proprietary design software we added radial head and clew sections which make the sail smoother while keeping the same “easy to trim” shape of the AP. The RHC also features a bit more depth in the forward mid-section of the RHC to allow easier gear changing in breezier conditions.

The RHC works great in combination with either the snug, loose or tight rig jib. It's smooth, easy to trim and fast!

Mainsails include:

  • Battens
  • Sail numbers
  • Flying Scot insignia
  • Vision/small jib leech window
  • Sail bag
  • Class Royalty


A large jib leech window that allows viewing of the entire jib leech, including both battens, is available at an additional charge.

AP Mainsail

Optimized with a slightly flatter lower luff area to reduce backwind in light to medium winds and in the upper sections to increase power and pointing ability in all conditions.

The North AP Mainsail is fitted with a shelf foot and custom reinforcements to help distribute the loads into the sail.

Ideal sail for crew weight under 450 lbs. or for those that like a slighter flatter sail.

Mainsails include:

  • Battens
  • Sail numbers
  • Flying Scot insignia
  • Vision/small jib leech window
  • Sail bag
  • Class Royalty


A large jib leech window that allows viewing of the entire jib leech, including both battens, is available at an additional charge.

Snug Rig Jib

2016 & 2015 North Americans!

The Snug Rig Jib is designed to be a great compromise between the Tight and Loose Rig jibs. It is ideal for those Scot sailors who like sailing with a rig tighter than the Loose Rig but don't want to work so hard to set the rig up as tight as necessary with the Tight rig setup. Ideally the rig should be tensioned tight enough that the tension gauge reads around 80 lbs. when measured on the forestay.

Similar to the Tight Rig Jib, the Snug Rig jib is especially easy to trim and steer due to its full and powerful entry. The steering groove on this jib is nearly the widest (least critical) of any Scot jib, second only to the Tight Rig jib, on the market today.

The upper leech is open and again, less demanding sheet tension-wise.

This jib is ideal for those Scot Sailors who want a very forgiving sail to trim and steer but want an easy set up tuning wise. The Snug Rig Jib, like the Tight Rig Jib, is a great choice for those who sail in primarily light and sloppy conditions or are relatively newer sailors, still becoming familiar with steering the Flying Scot.

The Snug Jib is built from the best firm finish 3.8 oz fabric.

Jibs include:

  • Vision window
  • Sail bag
  • Class Royalty

Loose Rig Jib

The Loose Rig Jib is designed for the "Sloppy Rig" tuning setup. A tried and true performer that sets up on the rig tuned with 3" of play fore and aft in the rig setting.

This jib is an easy jib to trim and forgiving to steer.

The upper leech is relatively open and therefore sheet tension is less critical.

This jib is ideal for those Scot sailors who want the ability to "Change Gears" through mainsheet trim....

Built from low stretch durable hard finish 3.8 oz fabric finished specifically to North Sails One Design's requirements.

Jibs include:

  • Vision window
  • Sail bag
  • Class Royalty

Tight Rig Jib

The Tight Rig Jib is designed to be sailed on a much tighter rig tune. Ideally the tension should be tight enough that the rig reads 220-250 lbs. when measured on the forestay. This jib is the fullest and most powerful in the North lineup. A full entry gives this jib the widest and most forgiving groove.

This jib is especially easy to trim and steer due to its full and powerfully entry. The steering groove on this jib is the widest (least critical) of any Scot jib on the market today.

The upper leech is open and again, less demanding sheet tension-wise.

This jib is ideal for those Scot Sailors who want the most forgiving sail to trim and steer. The rig simply does not change much as the conditions change, so the tuning and trim is almost self adjusting. The Tight Rig Jib is perfect for those who sail in primarily light and sloppy conditions or are relatively newer sailors, still becoming familiar with steering the Flying Scot.

Also built from the best firm finish 3.8 oz fabric.

Jibs include:

  • Vision window
  • Sail bag
  • Class Royalty
