Hello,

I know that probably there was a discussion in this topic somewhere, but nowadays, I can’t find any information on the internet.
What are the main differences between the most popular 505 sails (B-M, N-S, P&B and Glaser) in regarding to shape, sailing range & performance, longevity, etc?
Which of them is really “all purpose” sails?
Do you have any opinion on 3DL from N-S? Is it worth to buy?
Best regards,

Luke

They are all very similar in terms of performance and you can win with anyone of them, just take a look at the results of the last 4 Worlds and you will see they are all well represented. In my mind it comes down to your sailing style, where you are sailing and your time available to actually go out and use them. Time in the boat will trump the sails that you use.
