Though some H12s are kept simply for harbor sailing, many more are raced in regular regattas from New York to Maine. We have developed a tri-radial main, jib, and spinnaker construction that consistently beats out any other H12 sails. We also offer conventional cross-cut sails which can be customized to include hand-sewn grommets, narrow panels, and a variety of traditional sail cloth options. We make these products for any of the variations of the H12 design such as Haven, Doughdish, Cape Cod, and Somes Sound.
Mainsail: Warp-oriented premium Dacron, tri-radial panel layout, leech line, sail number & H-class insignia, draft stripe, telltales, tubular sail bag for storage.
Optional: track slides for head and/or foot, bronze mast hoop fasteners, conventional storage bags.
Jib: Warp-oriented premium Dacron, tri-radial panels, brass piston hanks, lace lines, telltales, tubular sail bag.
Optional: track slides on foot, webbing snaps instead of brass piston hanks, standard sail bag.

"Affinity" is one of the best examples of a Swan 48' found anywhere. She is constantly upgraded and fine-tuned for racing performance and cruising comfort. We work with her owners at ongoing innovation that includes the newest materials as they reach the market and the most efficient handling of her gear.
Mainsail: GPL carbon mainsails for both cruising and racing, 5 battens (top is full-length), over-the-head leechline handled from tack, loose foot, metal-free construction with liberal use of Spectra webbing and patching. Affinity's cruising mainsail is her retired racing mainsail, which we believe says a lot about the quality of our racing sails.
