Gennaker / Spinnaker
Downwind performance in High Performance boats is purely down to the Spinnaker. When Sven started working on his Design back 20 years ago his main objective was to have a sail which is very easy to handle. Usually, downwind sails require lots of focus on the trim to prevent the front leash from collapsing. In a matter of years, we found a sweet spot for Spinnaker designs, making our sails very easy to trim which allows sailors to focus on tactical racing.
The heart of every sailboat, the driving force,… basically the engine is represented in the mainsail. Here is where upwind performance is generated. The most challenging design factor for mainsails is to accomplish a well-balanced compromise. The Sail has to work in a wind range from 5 to 25 knots. Evaluating the sweet spot is where experience comes into place. Maximum depth, twist, and outlines are defining factors. Only after the concept of the mainsail has been considered a Kangaroo Mainsail goes into development.
The Jib in a Sailboat mainly directs the airflow around the leeward side of the mainsail. Therefore it is very dependent on the shape of the mainsail in order to function properly. In the developing process of a new Frontsail / Jib we first take a closer look at the mainsail. The angle of attack of the front leach, the point of max depth and the overall profile. After taking all those factor into account we manually design the Sail in our 3D CAD Programm.
