Leader Dinghy: One Design Data Sheet

Banks Sails have developed two styles of Leader sails.

The "Race" sails are for the Leader sailor who takes his racing seriously & they have received more attention at Banks Sails in recent seasons than ever before. A suit of "Race Specification" Polypreg sails won the 2001 National Championship and Banks customers also won the Travellers’ Trophy series in both 2001 and 2002.

The "Sport" range is for the sailor who uses his Leader for cruising and recreation but might like to do the occasional club race.
