Speed Lark sails have been consistently at the front of the fleet winning Nationals races and open meetings. The biggest event in recent years, the 2007 Inlands at Grafham, saw over 70 boats competing and 3 of the top 6 using Speed Sails.
The Speed Lark sails have seen extensive development work in recent times and this has paid off with excellent performances at all levels. The sails have seen further improvements with the development of a radial main sail head for a smoother shape and greater shape holding ability. The latest rig settings for the Speed Lark sails can now be found in our updated tuning guide helping you get the most from your sails.
Mainsail: 180 HTP+ Dimension Polyant One Design; Comes complete with battens, sailbags, sail numbers.
Jib: 180 HTP+ Dimension Polyant One Design; Comes complete with stuff luff & sail bag.
Spinnaker: AirX 700; Seams are glued & sewn for to provide extra durability for chute systems. Sail comes complete with sail bag & sail numbers.

Speed Sails have put together this tuning guide to help you set your boat up close to its ideal settings. These settings should be regarded as a starting point for fine tuning as individual boats and crews may need to alter them slightly for best performance. When you have your boat set up, remember to mark everything so that the settings can be reproduced quickly.

Already the traditional summer holiday championship season is fast approaching so if you are looking for that extra bit of performance on the race course time is running out to get a new set of championship winning sails before the big event for your class. To help make sure you get the new sails you need in time we are also now offering FREE delivery to various championships around the country.
Not sure on whether to trust brand new sails? At Speed Sails we appreciate that some people like to test new sails a couple of times before a major event and, with this in mind, may also be able to arrange delivery to a local open meeting free of charge. However, we also have such confidence that all our new sails will be on the pace straight away that Speed Sails staff used previously unused sails at 3 National Championships and 1 World Championship in 2007. Overall victory in all 4 events emphasises the performance advantage available and the lack of ‘wearing in’ time required to get the boat up to speed. In fact, 2 of the Nationals titles were achieved in Speed Sails boats which had never been on the water before either!
All of our sails come ready to sail with the numbers, battens, tell tales and sail licences all attached wherever appropriate. Also included is a tuning guide to make sure your rig is set up to the optimum settings and for many classes we can even arrange to have the sails measured before they leave the loft meaning all you have to do is pull the sails up and go!
Standard delivery time on new sails is currently 3 weeks but with staff attending events throughout the summer this can grow very quickly; make sure you don’t leave it too late to get your order in by contacting us today on 0845 50 40 600. Alternatively, sails for all our major classes can be purchased online at www.speedsails.co.uk. If you need your sails by a particular date please remember to let us know either directly or by filling in the special instructions box during the online check out process. For those sailors not planning on attending open meeting events this summer all of our sails can be delivered to your door using a well known next day courier service.
