Our Spinnaker sails are designed with state-of-the-art 3-D sail design software in Full-Radial or Tri-Radial cut.
The Full Radial design is the most popular choice and strongest construction. The radial shaped panels fan out from the three corners Head, Clew and Tack and run throughout the sail.
Asymmetric race spinnaker
Our Asymmetric Race Spinnakers have been developed by our professional team with a background in cutting edge sail design, using performance optimised software. They are constructed to the highest level of quality. Our Asymmetric Spinnakers are available in 6 different wind range models for the best performance on every course. Typical material is Contender Superkote of for planing boats Powerkote.
Cruising Code Zeros are designed with straight luff incorporating an anti-torsion rope and a small positive roach for stable trim and easy handling. They can be built out of heavy spinnaker cloth, which is most competitive, or a laminate for more demanding cruising sailors.
Race Code Zeros are built out of Dimension Polyant CZ Laminate. The mid girth of Racing Code Zeros is designed to be 75% of foot to avoid rating penalties which does mean a small downturn in wind range and handling but this is accepted by racers because of the advantages in rating.
The Full Radial design is the most popular choice and strongest construction. The radial shaped panels fan out from the three corners Head, Clew and Tack and run throughout the sail. The Tri-Radial layout, which has horizontal panels in the middle, is eligible for smaller sails with lower loads. This construction is less expensive in production because it is easier to manufacture and cloth can be used more efficiently. The benefit of both constructions is that the stress, which is radiating from Head, Clew and Tack into the sail, is along the seams instead of across them. The result is a strong sail and minimizes stretch and distortion. Furthermore the radial construction allows a more precise alignment of loads, while the number of panels enables the use of 3-D shaping and creating the optimum flying shape. In addition to the saildesign our excellent handcraft finish ensures precision shaped panels, strength, durability and performance.
They are produced in 20 sizes for the most commonly made yachts and are available in our blue, white and red star design. They are all cut to a full radial panel layout and in our Offshore standard. By following a standard build, this enables us to supply you with top quality sails at very competitive prices. The spinnaker cloth, sail design and finish will meet the high quality level of our individual sail production, this is no lesser spec. In addition you can purchase a suitable sized spinnaker sock for easy handling.
