Spinnaker prints by Performance Sails are among the lightest and most flexible ways to apply photo-realistic visuals to your new spinnaker. We use two different methods that are both safe and incredibly light & flexible at the same time. And because we care about the environment we sail in, both techniques have minimal impact on nature, are safe to use, and are non-toxic. It also means we specifically do not paint our spinnakers.
SPI-film© is a revolutionarily thin film that is applied to new, unsiliconed spinnakers. Because it’s so thin and flexible, you barely even notice you have a sticker on your sail. Another revolutionary technique we use is NaNo-print© , where we map and print your visuals directly into the fabric before we assemble your spinnaker. That way we can still apply a smoothing silicone treatment after assembly. It also means that the weight gain stays minimal: only 0.2 grams per m2. NaNo-print© is the same technique we use to make the official N17 Olympic Spinnaker.
If you’re feeling inspired, you’re at the right address.
SPI-film© is a revolutionary technique to apply graphics onto a spinnaker. It’s incredibly light and flexible, so you will never lose shape and therefore speed – you will never have to sacrifice performance for looks. It even folds like cloth when you’re sailing upwind. Available in mono-color or a slightly heavier fully printed version.
NaNo-print© is comparable to inlay techniques other manufacturers use, but this new technique adds almost no weight increase while still giving a strikingly vibrant look. Specifically developed for the official Olympic spinnaker of the Nacra 17 Mixed Multihull class, you have guaranteed quality downwind.
