North Sails A1 Asymmetric Spinnaker NPL DOWNWIND Gray

A1 ASYMMETRISCHER SPINNAKER

Light-Air Reacher

Die leistungsstarken Racing Asymmetrics von North sind die evolutionären Nachfahren unserer dominierenden America's Cup- und Volvo Ocean Race-Designs. Sie wurden mit Hilfe des Windkanals der Universität von Auckland und der North Sails Virtual Wind Tunnel™ Simulationssoftware entwickelt. Das Ergebnis ist ein stabiler asymmetrischer Spinnaker, der über ein breiteres Windspektrum hinweg mehr Vortrieb und weniger Widerstand bietet. Diese Eigenschaften sind besonders für die heutige Generation leichterer, schnellerer Boote besonders wichtig. North Racing Asymmetrics werden in sechs verschiedenen Windbereich-Modellen angeboten, jedes mit einer gezielten Auswahl an Materialien und Tuchstärken, die genau auf Ihr Boot und Ihren Regattakalender abgestimmt sind.

Modern asymmetric reaching sails require low stretch, lightweight, and highly durable materials. NPL DOWNWIND sails meet these requirements because they’re cut from purpose-built materials produced on the North Cloth laminator. North Sails offers multiple constructions to optimally address the wide range of conditions encountered by reaching sails – for inshore, offshore, monohull, multihull, racing, or cruising.
North Sails offers a wide variety of downwind symmetric and asymmetric sail types made using the NPC DOWNWIND sailcloth range. Each of our sail types is designed for a specific range of wind speeds and angles. Every North spinnaker is custom designed to suit each customer’s needs and maximize VMG/VMC in the broadest range of wind and sea conditions. NPC DOWNWIND sails provide higher boatspeeds, deeper angles, and faster acceleration with consistent and predictable trimming characteristics.
