Sails are not "off the peg" items. Our sails are made for you, for your boat, for your crew and for your sailing grounds. Particular attention is paid to the following criteria:
All sailing grounds have their own wave characteristics, which have an influence on the behaviour of a sailboat and its sails. From smooth waters in inland lakes to Atlantic rollers – together, we will define the nature of your sailing grounds and will then design your sail to match those characteristics.
Wind is the driving agent, the engine of a sailboat. Sailors must be properly equipped for all wind conditions in their sailing grounds. We check the weather data in your area and adapt the sail design to them.
What are your sailing goals? Leisure and relaxation, Olympic glory, afternoon excursions or around the world sailing — regardless of your objectives, we have the appropriate sailing solution.
Whether dinghy or superyacht, every boat size and design requires a specific sail design. The boat type is not only the most important indicator for the necessary sail size, but also for the characteristics of the most appropriate sails.
The number of crew members and the existing on-board equipment will influence the sail setting, trimming and striking systems. Elvstrøm Sails has developed sail designs that enable even large sail areas to be handled by just one or only a few crew members.
