MN-2 All-Purpose Mainsail
3DL Carbon/Aramid 860 19600 DPI

The challenge for the North Sails design team in regard to the X-41 MN-2 Mainsail, was to get the sail shape to work with mast flex in different wind conditions. We are very happy with the result, which combines broad seam and luff curve to produce a sail that is easy to trim and performs beautifully in all wind and chop conditions.
