Downwind Sails

Tri-Radial Spinnakers and Asymmetrics

At Hyde Sails, we have vast amounts of experience making downwind sails.

Being the first sailmakers to be involved with fast skiff-style boats has given us huge data and technical expertise regarding apparent wind and how it affects a sail and its design.

Hyde Sails is the sailmaker of choice for all the original equipment manufacturer performance dinghies and keelboats in the marketplace.  Our knowledge and experience are invaluable when it comes to designing a big Asymmetric or Symmetrical spinnaker for any large racing yacht, such as a J Boat or a Beneteau.

If you prefer to cruise rather than race our downwind cruising chutes provide a powerful yet stable shape, that is not overly sensitive to trim or steering angle. Enjoy cruising and eat up the miles, without the stress of constant trimming of your sail.
