  • Also known as a GENNAKER OR MPS

  • Highly competitive price

  • Choice of colour

Asymmetrical Spinnakers are easy to use and optimise sailing performance in light winds on courses from 75 to 160 degrees. They combine the characteristics of a reaching genoa with a spinnaker and therefore might fill a gap in your sail inventory.

The typical characteristic is a longer luff than the leech. The Tack will be fixed at the bow, anchor roller or bow sprite and is thereby flown without a spinnaker pole, hence they are much easier to handle than a symmetrical spinnaker. For this reason they are widely used on cruising boats, though they are also an important sail in a racer’s wardrobe to maximise reaching performance. When combined with a spinnaker sock the Asymmetrical Spinnaker becomes a sail that can be used by single or short-handed crews under all conditions.

SELECTING YOUR NEW ASYMMETRICAL SPINNAKER

WHAT SIZE DO I REQUIRE?  

The luff length is the deciding factor when choosing the right size Asymmetrical Spinnaker.  As a general rule, if you are going to fly the spinnaker just above the front pulpit, then the luff length should be about the same length that the mast height is above the deck.

For a more accurate measurement, raise a tape measure up on the spinnaker halyard until it’s at the full hoist position and measure down to where you would like the tack of the spinnaker to be – we’ll call this measurement "A".  If you have a bow sprite, this would be to the end of the bow sprite.  If you don’t, it will most likely be to the top of the forward railing (pulpit).

The luff length of the spinnaker should be measurement "A" x 1.03 (give or take 300mm either way).  For example, if the A measurement is 10.00m then the luff should be 10.00 x 1.03 = 10.30 +/- 0.30 or between 10.00 and 10.60.  In referring to the sizing chart below you will see that the correct sail to choose is our #2 Asymmetrical Spinnaker which has a luff length of 10.10m.

If you have any doubt then just email us or give us a ring.
