North Sails Tradewind Sails NPL DOWNWIND Gray

VELA TRADEWIND

Vela portante per lunghe distanze

La TradeWind è una vela da crociera a doppio uso che può essere volata gemellata in fil di ruota o come vela a due strati per angoli di vento più stretti.

La vela TradeWind si basa su un antico concetto di vela gemellata, fornendo una vela leggera, a volo libero e avvolgibile, indipendente dallo strallo fisso e dalla vela di prua di bolina.

Se utilizzata con angoli di vento di 150-180 gradi, la vela TradeWind offre una potenza semplice e sicura alle portanti. Le vele TradeWind utilizzano un tangone per il punto di scotta sopravento, mentre il punto di scotta per la vela sottovento si trova a mezza nave, garantendo un flusso continuo su entrambe le vele.

Per gli angoli di traversi più stretti, entrambe le scotte possono essere regolate da sottovento, in modo da fungere da vela per gli angoli di vento reale compresi tra 70 e 140. Questo fornisce una seconda modalità di navigazione che crea ulteriore potenza in aria leggera.

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.
