Ullman Sails and Melges 24

 

Ullman Sails are dominating the results at the major Melges 24 regattas, reflecting our commitment to being the world leader in one design and performance sailing.

 

The key to Melges 24 sailing is not memorising the racing guide, but understanding how the settings affect the boat and how it feels. The goal is to be able to feel that something is wrong and quickly fix the problem to keep your boat moving fast.

 

We have found the measurements and settings in this guide to be the fastest for the Melges 24. Since crew and sailing conditions vary, you may find slightly different settings are better for you. Go fast and have fun!

Why a Dacron Mainsail?

 

Other sailmakers build their Melges 24 mainsails out of laminate material, but the Ullman Sails Melges 24 mainsail uses woven Dacron, which has proven to be fastest and easiest to use across the wind range.

 

Automatic shift

Because we've arranged the crosscut panel orientation to place the cloth's threadline slightly off the load path in the critical upper-batten area of the mainsail, the leech automatically opens the right amount in gusts and as the wind builds -- an important adjustment that mainsails made of laminate material do not make. 

 

The "Shark" Model

The Ullman mainsail features a radial clew section of 5.46oz Contender Dacron to handle loads, and the remainder of the sail is crosscut of 4.52 oz Contender Dacron for maximum adjustability across the wind range.

 

Goes faster, longer

Finally, the "Shark" model mainsail not only goes through the wind range better and easier (letting you concentrate on racing instead of sail tweaking), the woven Dacron material holds its shape longer than laminate mainsails.

 

Spinnakers

 

All kites come with easy carry bag, sail numbers and come in white with an Ullman red and blue foot (other colours are available at a small surcharge).
