SELF-STABILIZING
SAILS

 

BORA & LEVANTE


In contrast to a conventional Spinnaker/ Gennaker our self-stabilizing sails BORA and LEVANTE are equipped with a lift creating wing in the upper part
of the sail body.



 




The advantages of this construction can be
summarized within the following features:














AUTOPILOT


Outstanding qualities with activated autopilot.
The entire boat is being stabilized as the sail is automatically balanced by the lifting function of the wing.
This leads to a reduction in rudder pressure and minimized corrections of the autopilot.









CRUISING

Relaxed cruising even without Spinnaker pole.
Besides the wide range of application,
the sail offers one more important aspect, comfort.
Easy to use, even under difficult conditions, the
overall reduced movements in rig and boat are
leading to a new feel of



harmonic
long-distance
cruising.

SAIL-COMPARISON



Allrounder


Our BORA and LEVANTE sails combining two sails
in one, Spinnaker and Gennaker.



BORA

The air inside the wing works like a soft batten and
stabilizes the sail from leech to luff.

This construction is extremely light and starts to
