Hyde Sails have been the leading supplier of sails to the J24 class for some years, working closely with Stuart Jardine to develop a range of highly competitive designs. These are now established as the benchmark for the class. Nine of the last eleven J24 UK National Championships have been won with Hyde Sails. Using our winning design Hyde Sails are pleased to offer sails for the IC24. This design will provide some of the fastest, most competitive IC24 sails available.
This sail is highly adjustable and performs well
throughout the wind range. The radial head ensures that the draft does
not move aft in strong winds and the large radial clew patch helps to
maintain a clean exit low down. The cross widths are as close to maximum
Mainsail Sailcloth is Dimension-Polyant 265 HTP Square.
The 2R is a lightweight sail made from two weights of
Kevlar laminates. Light is fast but the absence of taffeta does mean
that this sail is not likely to last as long as the 2PT. We recommend
this design for championship sailing on open water where there is less
likely to be a lot of short tacking.
2R Genoa Sailcloth - Dimension-Polyant X-Tech X10 in the luff Dimension-Polyant X15 in the leech.
The 2PT is the same shape as the 2R but uses a Pentex
laminate with taffeta protection in the leech area. The taffeta protects
both yarn and film so the material is less likely to delaminate or
crack. The sail is slightly heavier but more durable than the 2R and is
well suited to both club and regatta sailing.
2P Genoa Sailcloth - Dimension-Polyant PE 10 in the luff Dimension-Polyant PE15T in the leech.
The cross cut Hyde blade can be used from 16 knots up. At
this wind strength it is competitive with a genoa in speed but much
easier to handle. The design ensures that the upper leech can be opened
but continue driving when the sheet lead is moved a notch or two aft as
the breeze freshens.
3D Foresail Sailcloth - Contender 6.5oz Polykote.
This sail is designed for championship windward/leeward
courses. The big shoulders ensure maximum projected area when running
and allow the boat to go deep without losing speed.
Code 2L Spinnaker cloth - Contender 0.75oz Dynakote.
This is an all-purpose spinnaker without quite as much
projected area as the 2L and is therefore flatter across the head which
gives it good performance when reaching. The 2S is built from 0.9oz
Nylite which is more forgiving to trim than Dynakote and the additional
weight will give the sail a longer life.
