North's Sails

North Sails new 3Dtc is a breakthrough in sail construction that makes 3DL and 3Dr sails more durable and versatile.

With an additional internal core of tough, lightweight woven taffeta, 3Dtc sails will hold their shape and maintain durability which is often affected in other products by constant furling, flaking, folding and flogging.

Previously 3DL sails were available with the option of woven taffeta on one or both sides of the sail. With 3Dtc, the woven taffeta is now found laminated with the structural yarns in between the Mylar layers. Consequently, water absorption and mildew staining of the taffeta are eliminated, keeping the sail lighter and better looking!

North/s new 3Dtc is the only sail available nationwide that combines the durability of taffeta and resistance to tear and chafe with the unmatched strength and shape holding of 3DL and 3Dr sail products.
