There is NO doubt that making any yacht, whether day sailing, cruising or racing, lighter and stronger makes them faster, safer and more enjoyable to sail. This is why moves to introduce lightweight composite solutions are supported by all the main governing bodies of the sport. To this end, there is an increasing array of new performance products coming onto the market which follow the ethos of composite based, lightweight sailing systems.
