I have just done an atlantic crossing
on a FPlavezzi with such a Gennaker(we call it)
It was put on a 50cm bowsprit with attachments to the bows, made of a light material,
and it gave the cat great speed in low winds, I used it singlehanded without problems.
Fabulous addition. TWO WARNINGS however, or is it three?
Even at low winds the force on the attachments is high, we ripped one out of one hull
and replaced it with big plates behind it and still could see the hull
move with the wind
Don t leave it out went the speed goes comfortably up, it is not made to do that(looking at it s
fixations etc. ) becomes more difficult to get in AlONE.
When the wind increases risk of de-furling so you have to get it down, NOW that is not an
easy thing ALONE, especially if you didn t get it in already and it starts to un-furl.
Sounds worrying,,,, NO it s a great sail, just get in intime
