  • Note: Tri-radials provide a performance upgrade for those who are looking for more than what a classic woven polyester sail can provide. When it comes to boat handling and sailing enjoyment, it’s sail shape that makes the difference.
  • Note: Symmetrical Spinnakers are cut in a symmetrical shape and have mirrored Clew and Tack corners based on the orientation of the sail to the wind and require a Spinnaker pole. Asymmetrical Spinnakers have a designated Head, Tack, and Clew due to their shape and do not require a Spinnaker pole.
