Changes in Racing Sails and Sailmaking

"Several other sailmakers are developing their own processes of making membrane sails more directly from raw materials. More than a year ago, UK Sailmakers, makers of the distinctive Tape Drive sails, began selling Ultra, a new kind of sail based on similar principles. More recently, Ullman Sails International and the Quantum Sail Design Group have announced new, unique approaches based on offshore manufacturing. And North Sails hasn't been idle, continuing to invest heavily in quality control and R&D to refine production at its 3DL plant in Minden, Nev., and expand 3DL production of smaller sails with rotary-molding machines.
