Sail Cloth details:
Extensive testing by Sirius Sails have shown that the type of sail cloth has almost no impact on performance, given that the load limits of the material are not exceeded. Generally, heavier sail cloth is more stable in all load directions than lighter sail cloth, is less flexible, but will provide the longest racing life. Lighter cloth weights are more flexible and respond to light air more readily, making them easier to read, but do not provide the longevity of heavier cloth.
Most standard Sirius Sails suits are made using the DPL 82 material. Details and uses for each type of cloth are:
200P - 0.004" thick (2.1 oz) polyester with scrim in the warp and fill directions. Flexible, yet strong when warp load oriented. Suitable for general purpose main and jib sails.
3 oz Utility Dacron - 0.005" thick (3.0 oz) woven polyester . Medium flexability with great strength when warp load oriented. Suitable for general purpose main and jib sails.
