A close reaching sail built for 5 to 15kts TWS, and a mid girth of > 75% of the foot length. Designed for use in the 50-80 AWA range. Built from purpose designed laminate sail cloth, and includes a luff torsion rope
A0 – Tight Reacher
A light air reaching sail, similar to the Code zero, with more luff round, large mid girth and a more stable roach profile. Designed to sail a little deeper than the CodeZero, with an AWA range of 60-95deg.
A3 – Medium Air Reacher
The general purpose reaching sail, design for light to medium air conditions (5-15kts TWS). Can be sailed quite tight in lighter winds, and with the longer luff will project to windward in stronger winds, for deeper angles. Over a range of 75-125deg AWA.
A5 – Heavy Air Reacher
A heavy air reaching sail (15-25kts TWS), allows reaching (85-135deg AWA) in stronger winds, smaller and flatter than the A3. Designed for a fractional halyard where possible, and potentially tacked from the bow rather than pole end.
A2 – Medium Air Runner
The general purpose running sail for asymmetric boats. Design for light to medium air conditions (5 – 15kts TWS). Generally used for sailing deeper angles, 115-165 AWA. A stable shape, that will fly well to weather of the forestay, and away from the mainsail.
A4 – Heavy Air Runner
Built from heavier spinnaker cloth than the A2, this heavy air running sail is targetted at the 10-25kts TWS range and will fly at very deep angles, 120-165° AWA. A higher clew, flatter cut, less roach and reduced area will result in a more forgiving asymmetric.
