Why Choose North Sails Gennakers
North Sails Easy Gennaker made from standard measurements gives you the opportunity to acquire a North Gennaker at a very advantageous price. As the name says, this sail is built for carefree sailing. It flies easily, is easy to handle, and needs less trimming than other brands. Combined with a North Snuffer you have the perfect solution for the small crew. North Easy Gennaker is developed in our proprietary Gradient design-program and manufactured by our skilled sailmakers in a panel lay-out, which provides a smooth and stabile shape, fundamentally based on the same design and shape which America's Cup and Volvo Ocean Race boats benefit from.
North Sails Gennaker Cloth
North G-Series Gennakers are made of NorLon™, North's own premium nylon spinnaker fabric (see right.) For most boats 0.9 oz cloth is generally used. G-Series Gennakers are also available in 1.5 oz. Norlon is available in a wide variety of designer colours. North's Norlon spinnaker fabrics feature an extremely flat weave to reduce airflow through the fabric. Additional finishing is applied to further seal and stabilize the cloth.
