This sail seriously improves the performance across the wind range of self-tacking jibs, the design with battens and roach in the leech addresses the lack of interaction encountered with the classic self-tacking set up by improving the air flow to the leeward side of the mainsail.
- Includes easy furl battens
- Hybrid or laminate sailcloth
- Curved clew board for greater area and improved leech control
- Optional UV strip
Developed by Crusader Sails to achieve the maximum performance from a non overlapping headsail using laminate or hybrid sailcloth with roach in the leech (convex curve) supported by battens orientated so that the sail will fully roll onto the reefing system, this greatly improves the interaction between headsail and mainsail smoothly unifying the air flow of the two sails into a unified driving force. In short, it points higher and goes faster. The latest curved clew board increases overlap and assists smooth tacking and sheet angle adjustment.
