North Proctor Thistle Mainsail
#1 2014 Nationals!
The Proctor mainsail is a relatively full sail up top with flatter lower sections and the draft slightly farther aft. While it is truly and all-around performer, the Proctor main excels in light to medium wind conditions.
The Proctor main is a fairly easy sail to trim. Because of the softer, slightly heavier fabric it is less mainsheet sensitive, but more cunningham sensitive. Generally the traveler is used to help depower and balance the boat in breezier 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!
