MNB-4 All-Purpose Mainsail $15,654
3DL 850 Carbon/Technora 19600 DPI

The MNB-2 design has been developed from the original mainsail design to match the new mast tune and max forestay tension. It is more powerful in the head for light conditions and slightly above the minimum class weight but still an All-Purpose design. It is built with 19600 dpi for better shapeholding through the racing seasons due to the Class sail yearly restrictions.

MNi-4 Mainsail $17,343
3Di™ 780i Carbon/Dyneema 19600 DPI CSD Layout

With 3Di™ technology, we are able to give the sail more modulus for the same weight and more control of headstay sag because the mainsheet load is transferred directly to the boat through the carbon leech yarns. Early trials show this sail to have more flexibility and shapeholding through the wind ranges due to the more efficient 3Di structure.

CLASS HEADSAILS


All North Soto 40 Headsails are equipped with the following:

FEATURES:
» High modulus leech line
» Foot Line
» Trim Stripes
» Sausage Bag
» Tack Snap Shackle
» 1 Full Length Epoxy Top Batten
» 3 Epoxy Leech Battens
» Telltales
» T Ring
» Class Measurement Stamp

LMB-4 Light/Medium Headsail $9,365
3DL 860 North Flex-Balanced™ Carbon 16800 DPI
Thin Films


We have made small changes to the design and geometry of this Carbon/Technora sail which was developed from our very successful LM mold. We increased the DPI and reduced overall weight of the sail to improve the wind range and durability. The new LMB-3 design is slightly more powerful and has a rounder entry to compensate for the higher forestay tension used now in the Class. We have maximized the sail area by increasing the foot and leech length to maximum Class dimension and allow the clew to be as low as possible. This allows the sail to be sheeted at closer angle for better pointing.

DESIGNED WIND RANGE:
0 - 13 knots true wind speed

LMi-4 Light/Medium Headsail $10,452
3Di™ 780i Carbon/Dyneema 16800 DPI CSD Layout

New layout with small changes to design and geometry. By using North 3Di™ technology, the LMi-3 has been engineered to save overall weight and still have a higher modulus than the LMB-3. It is a powerful sail with a wider groove for easier steering in under-powered conditions but still easy to de-power in the upper range by adjusting the "up & down" and sheet tension. We have maximized the sail area by increasing the foot and leech length to maximum Class dimensions and allowing the clew to be as low as possible. This allows the sail to be sheeted at closer angle for better pointing.

DESIGNED WIND RANGE:
0 - 13 knots true wind speed


MHi-4 Medium/Heavy Headsail $11,206

3Di 780i Carbon/Dyneema 19600 DPI CSD Layout

New layout with small changes to design and geometry. The MHi-3 headsail has been engineered to have a high modulus and it requires less trimming attention in changing conditions and allows you to keep the weight to windward all the time for better stability. In the upper range of the MHi-3, you can easily twist the top batten by easing the sheet and/or the "up & down" control without losing control of the mid leech. This allows for better acceleration without losing pointing ability.

DESIGNED WIND RANGE:
12-20 knots true wind speed


H4A-3 Headsail $6,295

Paneled Construction (per Class Rules) Dimension BX 20

The H4A-2 has been re-designed with small changes to design and geometry. The H4A-2 has an increased overall entry angle and bottom quarter depth to allow a wider steering groove. The final sail area has been reduced slightly to allow for better performance in the upper range of the sail.

DESIGNED WIND RANGE:
19+ knots true wind speed

CLASS DOWNWIND


North Sails has re-designed the entire Soto 40 downwind inventory to provide more versatile flying shapes for more aggressive "mode" sailing in each wind range. The class allows only three Masthead Spinnakers to be measured in any regatta. Minimum weight is 30 grams/m2. After three years of racing in the Soto 40 Class, we have invested many hours of R&D with our own VWT (Virtual Wind Tunnel). As a result, we have re-designed all our spinnaker inventory, materials and construction to better meet the AWA that the boat sails in for each wind condition.

CODE A1.5-3 $8,496
SK 60
Area: 178.6 Square Meters

APPLICATION:
Optimized for 50-95 degrees AWA the new A1.5-3 has been re-designed to be more powerful and with a new geometry to allow max sail area . By going to maximum luff length allowed by the class this new A1.5-3 design has 4 square meters more sail area than the previous A1.25-1 and 2, 1 square meter more than the A1.5-1. It is easier to sail at lower angles something that becomes tactically very important in this Class and thanks to the new sail geometry , this new A1.5 has a nice and twisty shape to be fast when sailing tighter angles in the light breeze.

SPECIALIZED WIND RANGE:
5-14 knots true wind speed


CODE A2-4 $8,062
AirX 600
Area: 182.3 Square Meters

APPLICATION:
The A2-2 has been re-designed for max area and to be easy to fly. It is more powerful than previous designs and allows for sailing lower angles and easy steering in any condition.

SPECIALIZED WIND RANGE:
13-18 knots true wind speed

CODE A4-2 $8,226
AirX 700
Area: 182.3 Square Meters

APPLICATION:
Designed to keep the boat planning all the time, we modified the previous A4 by adding 2 square meter more sail area and making it slightly more powerful to achieve this at lower angles . Due to the Class restrictions for sail replacement we have reinforced this sail very carefully to be very durable and still keep it light to perform well in the lower range.

SPECIALIZED WIND RANGE:
18+ knots true wind speed
