MC SCOW SAILS, TUNING & EXPERTS

MC Scow Sails - North Sails is the leader in one design sailmaking. On this page, you will find information about our complete line of MC Scow sail models, MC Scow tuning advice, and MC Scow news and results from the race course.


Z-Max Mainsail

2016, 2015 & 2014 National Champion!

 
The most powerful MC sail available on the market! The Z MAX continues to maintain its status as the most popular and versatile sail on the MC circuit.

Not only is it the most widely used, it is also the most successful sail, winning every major regatta in the MC Circuit. There is no better MC sail, period.
The unique design incorporated with the soft cloth in the body of the Z MAX allows for the ability to shift gears for different conditions and offers several shapes depending on what you are looking for.

Mainsail standard features:

  • Tapered battens
  • Enhanced vision window
  • Ultra-lite telltales
  • Waterproof personalized sail bag
  • Class insignia
  • Class Royalties
  • Choice of red, blue, black or green numbers

"I like my North Z MAX sail for many reasons. For me, it means that I only need one sail. You can make it as flat or as full as you want. It is the right sail for all conditions. While some sails might be fast in one particular wind speed or sailing angle, the North Z MAX is always fast. It is easy to set up your boat on stock measurements and use this sail. No adjustments to the rig are necessary when conditions change." Jeff Annis

ZAP Mainsail

 
The North Sails ZAP design for the MC Scow means FAST for many sailors. The ZAP is built of North's superior 3.8 oz Dacron material. It featured a combination of hard cloth all around the sail, smooth shape and ultimate durability.

The ZAP is extra-FAST for the following MC sailors:

  1. Weight less that 175 lbs: The ZAP features a flatter shape and still powerful and fast in a wide range of conditions.
  2. Heavy air sail: When the wind is up this sail is fantastic for singlehanded sailors of any size. Even if you put a crew and  your combined weight is less than 275 lbs, the ZAP is a great choice.
  3. Small lake, flat water: The ZAP will point higher and go fast in a small lake, flat water condition.

Mainsail standard features:

  • Tapered battens

Z-One Radial Mainsail

2013 Nationals Champion!

The Z-One powered Kenny Wolfe to win the 2013 National Championship and has won many other major events. The Z-One sail is made out of hard cloth 3.8oz Dacron. A perfect sail for all conditions as it will carry the full range of wind and weight. Fast with a crew in the breeze too.
