Scorpion sails

During 2019 Moatt Scorpion sails have continue to produce results. Sam Barker and Cara Jones battled the conditions at Llandudno to finish a great fourth in the National Championships


The sail designs are based on the huge amount of knowledge and experience of Adam and Richard Bowers who have been sailing Scorpions since their teens.  Working with nine times National Champion, John Mursell, means our designs were fast “out of the box”.  Read John’s comments here.


The mainsail design has been revisited to take advantage of the light weight and high strength of Dimension Poylant ODL 4.0.

This cross cut design gives excellent shape stability whilst being flexible enough to cope with the full range of wind conditions.


Designed with a relatively full entry this sail has a wide groove to steer in giving the helm lots of options to point or foot.

To compliment the cross cut construction we have opted to use Contender sailcloth’s Fibercon® Competition – Polykote Ripstop 4.46 . This gives good strength to the hot knifed leech and extends life expectancy of the sail.  It is also sensitive enough to allow for a responsive luff without compromising shape stability


The elipticity of this design allows for a great trimming experience.  On a tight reach the luff can be rolled without instantly collapsing. On broader reaches and down wind the shoulders project to give maximum projected area.

You know that feeling when the spinnaker on the boat behind seems to be projecting better and looks faster?  Well if it’s a Moatt Spinnaker you’re looking at , perhaps it is!
