Our Spinnaker sails are designed with state-of-the-art 3-D sail design software in Full-Radial or Tri-Radial cut.
The Full Radial design is the most popular choice and strongest construction. The radial shaped panels fan out from the three corners Head, Clew and Tack and run throughout the sail. The Tri-Radial layout, which has horizontal panels in the middle, is eligible for smaller sails with lower loads. This construction is less expensive in production because it is easier to manufacture and cloth can be used more efficiently.
The benefit of both constructions is that the stress, which is radiating from Head, Clew and Tack into the sail, is along the seams instead of across them. The result is a strong sail and minimizes stretch and distortion. Furthermore the radial construction allows a more precise alignment of loads, while the number of panels enables the use of 3-D shaping and creating the optimum flying shape. In addition to the saildesign our excellent handcraft finish ensures precision shaped panels, strength, durability and performance.

Our Spinnakers come in three styles:
– the symmetrical, the asymmetrical and our standard spinnaker.
Rolly Tasker Symmetrical All Purpose Spinnaker
Rolly Tasker symmetrical All Purpose spinnakers are the ideal sail for the sporty ambitious weekend sailor, long passage maker or serious racer on courses from 80 to 180 degrees.
Rolly Tasker Asymmetrical MPS-Spinnaker
The Rolly Tasker MPS Spinnaker is an easy to use sail which optimizes the sailing performance in light winds on courses from 75 to 160 degrees. It combines the characteristics of a reaching genoa with a spinnaker and therefore might fill a gap in your sail inventory. The typical characteristic is a longer luff than the leech. The Tack will be fixed at the bow fitting or gennaker boom and is thereby flown without a spinnaker pole: hence much easier to handle than a symmetrical spinnaker. For this reason they are widely used on cruising boats, though they are also an important sail in a racer’s wardrobe to maximise upwind performance. When combined with a spinnaker sock the asymmetrical spinnaker becomes a sail that can be used by single or short-handed crews under all conditions.
Rolly Tasker Standard Spinnakers
Next to our individualized spinnaker we produce standard symmetrical and asymmetrical spinnaker. They are produced in 20 sizes for the most commonly made yachts in a standard colour full radial panel layout. This enables us to supply you with top quality sails at very competitive prices. The spinnaker cloth, sail design and finish will meet the high quality level of our individual sail production. In addition you can purchase a suitable sized spinnaker sock for easy handling.
To offer a complete package we can deliver configured Polyester or Dyneema sheets which are produced in-house with our modern rope braiding machines.
