3DL 600
The most successful racing sail in history keeps getting better.


3DL 600 sails are continuing developments of the 3DL original, and have won more sailboat races than any other racing sail in history... from club championships to the Grand Prix circuit, to America's Cup and Volvo Ocean Races. They are the essential 3DL style, and deliver an unequalled combination of speed, shapeholding and value to small-to-midsize racers and offshore one-designs.

Black high modulus aramid structural yarn and smoke gray films produce a striking high-tech appearance.

3DL 600 features 100% high-modulus black aramid structural yarn.

3DL 600 sails can also be ordered with either an additional internal scrim or single-sided white North TF™ taffeta for improved toughness.

Product Highlights
  • Thermo-formed on full-sized three-dimensional molds
  • 3DL 600 features 100% black aramid structural yarn
