Cape Dory Typhoon Daysailer Sail Data

# X-SD-4381

Sailboat Description

The Cape Dory Typhoon Daysailer was designed by Carl Alberg. The typhoon daysailer combines the security and stability of a full keel with an attached rudder with an easy to handle sloop rig just like the original weekender it was modeled after. The deep cockpit is self bailing and at 7.5 feet long plenty of space to enjoy the water with others. The daysailer has a masthead rig and a small self tacking jib makes handling a breeze.

Please Note: Most of our sail dimensions are based on class rules, designer blueprints, or measurements of sails. These dimensions are intended as starting points only. Sailboats are not all uniform, even from the same designer. We recommend carefully measuring your boat if you are uncertain about dimensions.

All dimensions are intended to be maximum and smaller sails are not wrong.

We've limited our listing to the sails most commonly used, but these are not the only ones appropriate for a given boat.
