screecher gennaker, same thing to me. As I see it, it is just larger jib
, another level of reefing. Say for upwind, up to 15 kn app - screecher, up to 20 full jib
, up to 26 1 reef in main, etc, as per lagoon
manual. It is 76m2, carbon. UV protection is that white stuff, apparently some high tech material, forgot the name. It is around 0.5m wide. See pic. It appears no rain comes thru either, as I have checked recently. Mold
is killer for carbon sails
. Maybe it is actually done well, still not sure.
I will have it on when in sailing mode, not really all the time. And is especially good in super light winds as it does not collapse even in 3kn app.
