RACING SYMMETRICAL SPINNAKERS

With all of the recent development of asymmetrical spinnakers lately it's easy to forget Doyle's conventional symmetrical spinnakers. Building on past development with geodesic fairing, recent development have been accelerated by enhanced CFD software and analysis tools, resulting in even faster spinnakers. Doyle Sailmakers offers 5 unique spinnaker molds: VMG, AP Runner, AP Reacher, Heavy Runner (designed for windward-leeward courses) & Heavy Reacher (designed for reaching legs).

S1

A lightweight VMG sail that can be used to sail lower wind angles. This sail is for those that require light weight sails to improve their boats’ downwind sailing.

Recommended True Wind Angle: 100 – 142 degrees

Recommended True Wind Speed: 5 – 11 knots

S2

An all-purpose running sail that covers a large wind range. It has larger shoulders to allow the sail to fly away from the rig into the open wind where it is most useful.

Recommended True Wind Angle: 138 – 160 degrees

Recommended True Wind Speed: 11 – 20 knots

S3

An all-purpose reaching sail that covers small wind ranges and angles. It is designed to sail closer to the wind and be a bit flatter in shape than the S2.

Recommended True Wind Angle: 125 – 138 degrees

Recommended True Wind Speed: 14 – 20 knots

S4

A heavy running sail that is used in a higher wind range and sailing deeper angles. It is designed in a way that when running in heavy air, the sail remains stable.

Recommended True Wind Angle: 145 – 165 degrees

Recommended True Wind Speed: 20 – 30 knots

S5

A heavy reaching sail that is used in a variety of wind ranges and designed to be carried at tighter angles as the wind increases.

Recommended True Wind Angle: 140 – 160 degrees

Recommended True Wind Speed: 20 – 30 knots
