New Code Zero - Page under construction!

 
2013-01-22
As all 370-owners know our boats require a little bit more wind in order to be part of a race. Winds below 5 m/s don't really put nautical miles under the keel very fast. To prevent total boredom and the embarrassment of watching other boats pass us by we decided to upgrade the textile engine a little bit. The main requirements were:- easy to handle from the cockpit if possible, light but strong material and of course the sail area. The result was a Code Zero on a furler which made it easy to handle from the cockpit and if the furler failed, it would be easy to collect the sail and stow it under deck. This would not been easy with a laminated sail such as a Code 1 or similar.
