470 SAILS

470 Sails - North Sails is the leader in one design sailmaking. On this page, you will find information about our complete line of 470 sail models, 4770 tuning advice and 470 news and results from the race course.


N14-L18 Mainsail

New for 2017!

The new N14- L18 Mainsail has been developed with Mat Belcher and the North Sails Japanese design team. Its powerful depth in the head of the sail, gives an ideal twist for driving the boat to speed and for quick acceleration in planing conditions. Lower drag is created by the shape from the bottom to the middle which works for both speed and pointing performance under full power conditions, where you need to keep the boom completely at center.

Mainsails include:

  • Vision window
  • Battens
  • Sail numbers
  • Telltales
  • Class insignia
  • Sail bag

You can customize your North radial main. This is one of the biggest advantage of North Radial. Customize will be done according to your mast bend profile, sailing weight, or target wind range. Use the North Sails One Design Mast Deflection Test. Send our experts the data and we’ll help you select the best mainsail model.


"I am very fond of the N14 Mainsail, which was developed during our last two Olympic campaigns. It is very special to us, we used this sail to win 6 world titles and 2 Olympic medals. The sail is fast in all conditions and easy to trim, which has enabled us to focus on racing and has helped us get out of a lot of tight situations. I'm sure many teams will now enjoy sailing with this mainsail knowing it's one less variable to worry about in their boat performance." - Mat Belcher


N13-L16 Mainsail

World Champion!

N13-L16 comes from same mold of N13-L12 (2008 Olympic Gold medal design) with a slightly different panel layout which has horizontal panels at the top section. This panel layout makes the exit straighter, making the trim easier, and improving pointing ability in light/medium condition.

Works with M7+ mast. Built by North Sails Japan.

Mainsails include:

  • Vision window
  • Battens
  • Sail numbers
  • Telltales
  • Class insignia
  • Sail bag

Works with SuperSpar M7+ and Proctor masts. Built by North Sails Japan.

Mainsails include:

  • Vision window
  • Battens
  • Sail numbers

V2 Spinnaker

Two Gold Medals!

Another class standard. The V2 won the 2004 Men’s Olympics, 2008 Men’s Olympics, and 2008 Women’s Olympics. At the 2008 Games, 80% of the sailors choose the V2 with lighter cloth. The V2 is designed to be slightly flat in the head, allowing for better VMG angles in light air, flat water, and in breezy, pole-forward conditions. You can stabilize the shape by dropping the pole height in powered and choppy conditions.

This sail is available in 0.75oz cloth (standard) or 0.5oz cloth, all white or all blue. Built by North Sails Japan.

Spinnaker (V-3)

Gold Medal

The V3 is similar in total depth to the A2, but more stable and easier to trim, it has a slightly smaller projected area than the A2.

This sail is available in 0.75oz cloth (standard) or 0.5oz cloth, all white or all blue. Built by North Sails Japan.

A2 Spinnaker

Pure Power!

The A2 is our most powerful design. It won the 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007 World Championships. The A2 has the widest projected area of all our designs, while still powerful on reaching angles. This is the best spinnaker for all-around performance and suits more physical crews.
