Cross Cut and Tri Radial Mainsails

Mainsail Specifications

Cross Cut Process

Fareast Sails cross cut sails are fully customized with your sailing style in mind. Cross cut sails provide durability and longevity. Each sail is assembled in an organized datasheet for you. You will then be able to review the chart and make changes. Once you approve the chart, we draw each sail and we provide you CAD drawing of your sail(s). You can again review and make changes. Once you approve the drawings, we cut your sail. The process is quite easy.
