The fabrics that are chosen to be part of the Doyle Sails Offshore Cruising range are selected according to their UV rating, stability and longevity. Doyle Sails only works with the worlds best cloth manufacturers to deliver sails that perform better and last longer than others.
It is imperative for the long distance cruising sailor that on board repairs can be easily facilitated without the requirement (in more cases than not) to bring the sail off the boat and into the local loft. Ensuring that all of the corners are adequately reinforced is paramount with each edge of the sail being strengthened with a heavier weight Dacron and stitched with two rows of heavy duty thread.
All of the webbing is straight stitched which insets the thread into the webbing for better protection from both chafe and UV.
