3Di NordacNorth Sails 3Di NORDAC Recognized as Game Changing Cruising Sail Technology

North Sails 3Di NORDAC was named Best New Product at the Newport International Boat Show awards on September 15th. Introduced in Spring of 2017, 3Di NORDAC transforms polyester fiber into seamless, one-piece sails that are uniquely strong, beautiful, and long-lasting. Presented in partnership with Cruising World, Sailing World, and Yachting magazines, the Newport for New Products panel described 3Di NORDAC as a game-changer for cruising sailors.

“We think this is going to give any cruising or recreational sailboat owner a much better sailing experience, regardless of how they are using the boat.”

Sally Helme, Group Publisher for Cruising World and Sailing World, presented the award on behalf of Newport for New Products. “Transforming polyester fiber into seamless, one piece-sails that are stronger and lighter weight than the woven sails that have been the standard for over 60 years, this new technology gives cruisers a higher performance sail with a better shape and greater shape longevity.”

“It’s an honor to receive this recognition for a product that our development team worked very hard to create. 3Di NORDAC represents a new breed of Dacron cruising sails that provide a better sailing experience for North Sails clients.” said North Sails CEO, Dan Neri.

Designed for the small to medium size cruising boat, 3Di NORDAC addresses an inherent problem of woven polyester sailcloth – it fails to provide true value to cruising sailors because the sails lose their shape long before structural integrity is compromised. By marrying patented 3Di shape holding technology with the toughness and affordability of traditional white polyester, 3Di NORDAC offers cruising sailors a superior sail at an achievable price.

“The sails are more responsive and hold their shape better than traditional panel sails, which allows more control of your sail power and increases your ability to balance the boat,” said Bill Fortenberry, North Sails Cruising Segment Manager. “Moving fast and efficiently through the water is the hallmark of the North Sails cruising experience.”
