Simmer Blacktip 2019

The Simmer Blacktip 2019 goes from powered up to neutral instantly, which allows you to generate more torque off the bottom turn with a generous release of power off the top, all the while not compromising whatsoever in placement and position. For 2019 we have made some refined technical advancements which combined create a more effective sail. The new luff features more curve in the top 25%, but with a breaking point for the twist lower down in the sail. This allows the sail body and mast to generate more energy which effectively creates a more dynamic sail body. The new vertical shaping techniques create a more harmonious sail profile which results in a more even skin tension between all areas of the sail, providing a more balanced and effective rig. A narrower mast sleeve in the lower sail body creates a more direct power delivery and makes it quicker to de-power.

FEATURES

  • The kevlar stretch control tendons combined with a progressive batten layout secures the sail profile giving the sail a wide wind range.
  • A lower positioned clew ring to respond to a more upright sailing position, seen in multi-fin sailing.
  • Low-end power for early planing, high cut foot combined with a relatively short boom for manoeuvrability.
  • Superb ability to de-power in the critical moment of a manoeuvre and very forgiving handling characteristic.
  • Seams aligned along the directions of the load lines to distribute the forces.
  • Lightweight panel layout.
