Storm Sails are a necessity when sailing offshore in areas with the risk of strong winds and heavy weather.

They are also demanded as being part of the sail wardrobe by most international organizations for offshore racing events including Australia. Marine annual insurance premiums are usually cheaper if leisure boats carry them onboard.
In using storm sails in heavy weather conditions the centre of effort is reduced which means less heeling and better steering. Many sailors tend to purchase a storm jib sail one size larger than required so it can double as an inner staysail for use in windy areas.

Rolly Tasker makes storm sails to standard sizes. They are rugged and strongly finished to ensure they are capable of handling storm conditions reliably and give trouble free use. The sailcloth used is heavy duty dacron constructed with over sized and heavy corner patches with webbing and hand sewn leather re-enforcement: the seams are triple stitched and leech lines installed. They are made in plain white with highly visible orange balls both sides of the sail, or for a small additional cost the full sail can be made all orange which is an Australian Yachting Federation requirement when racing offshore. Storm jibs have the option of brass hanks on the luff, or a luff tape if feeding into a furling unit. Trysails can be equipped with luff slides, or left with eyelets for parrel beads to be installed.
