International 505

Glaser Sails officially opened for business in 5-05 and enjoys a strong presence in the class. Glaser Sails have been used by teams in the top ten in every World Championships but one(11th) since the loft started in 2005. Our sails were 1, 3, and 5 in the windy 2019 Worlds; 2, 4 and 7 at the light air 2017 Worlds; and 1st at the 2016 Worlds in mixed breezes.

We are really lucky to have the input of some very talented, committed and innovative 505 sailors to help with sail development and boat set-up and tuning. We really appreciate the support and expertise of 505 experts like Howie Hamlin, Mike Martin and Tyler Moore.

Development into new materials and sail shapes is ongoing. We offer several models for different size teams and sailing conditions. We design, cut and build all of our sails in our loft in California and work very hard to make the sails as consistently excellent as possible. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
