C SCOW


I-1 Gold Mainsail
Wind Range: 0-20 knots

2015 National Champion!

 
Our light to medium C Scow main is ultra-fast in any condition. For the best combination of pointing ability and pure speed, the I-1 is far ahead of the competition.

While keeping the overall integrity of our highly successful I-1 Mainsail intact, we have made a few enhancements which will make the I-1 Gold tough to beat:

  • The broadseems have been smoothed out to make a smoother body
  • The head, clew and tack patches have been redesigned and reinforced to provide for more stability at the most critical points of the sail
  • We have added a little more depth to the overall shape to provide for more power which fast C Scow teams desire.

Specifically designed for ILYA racing and winds up to 20 knots. It features break-through design that incorporates increased fullness for power yet is controllable with increased velocity.

I-1 Gold mainsail includes:

  • Custom RBS tapered battens
  • Choice of red, blue, black or green numbers
  • Enhanced vision window
  • Waterproof personalized sail bag
  • Ultra-lite luff and leech telltales
  • Class insignia
  • ILYA measurement number
  • Spectra leech line





Harecut Mainsail
Wind Range: 0-15 / 15-25 knots


The Harecut has won more races in C Scow sailing than any other sail in history. With a flatter profile and a harder cloth than the I-1, the Harecut is the sail to have when the breeze is up. If you want to go fast in a breeze, or if you have light crew weight, the Harecut is the sail of choice.

The Harecut mainsail is designed for 15 knots of wind or more, especially when you need that extra gear in a big race. Great for two in medium conditions and a must for the big wind conditions. Also proven to be very fast in light variable, shifty, flat water conditions.

Harecut mainsail includes:

  • Custom RBS tapered battens
  • Choice of red, blue, black or green numbers Enhanced vision window
  • Waterproof personalized sail bag
  • Ultra-lite luff and leech telltales
  • Class insignia
  • ILYA measurement number
  • Spectra leech line





G137 Mainsail
Wind Range: 0-12 knots

The New G-137 mainsail design is a proven winner in light air. Best in the 0-12 mph range the G-137 has been a part of Jim Gluek’s arsenal for many racing seasons. Fast upwind and downwind – a great sail for your C scow inventory. Made out of 3.8 oz cloth with special attention to detail. The sail to have in light days!
