Fisher Mainsail

#1 2016, 2015, 2013 & 2012 Nationals!

The Fisher mainsail has been totally refaired which means that the computer has made the seams very smooth and consistent from head to foot and leech to luff...the result is a very pleasing sail to trim and a faster sail since it is exceptionally smooth. While it is slightly flatter down low, it is fairly full and powerful up high for true all-around performance. It is a slightly more mainsheet sensitive sail and due to its lighter, stiffer fabric reacts quickly to changes in wind velocity.

The Fisher main enjoys vang sheeting and is an ideal choice for those Thistlers who are most comfortable with vang sheeting when sailing in bigger breeze.

Now 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 shorthanded 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!

Mainsails include:
Battens

  • Sail numbers
  • Insignia
  • Vision window
  • Sail bag

"Historically I have always been competitive off the wind, but have generally been a little slower than the fast guys upwind. Last Saturday, it was like we had a gas pedal  going upwind. At times we were just as fast as the good guys, and at times we were actually faster upwind. Clearly the new sails and the mast tuning made all the difference". -- Jim Dixon

 Proctor 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.

DSD 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.
