When a cruising yacht needs to fly a spinnaker it is almost always to sail low and avoid using a pole. Running in medium breezes, only very light planing yachts can gain enough speed by sailing high to usefully sail the extra distance. Our spinnaker, which can sail extra-low, is therefore the perfect shape for a cruising yacht. Our cruising chutes are extremely stable and easy to trim too - so stable that you can cleat the sheet and steer to it. We've even had customers say they can fly their asymmetric spinnaker with the autopilot steering!
Shape is just a part of what makes our cruising chutes special. Size is very important too, and careful measurement is part of what we offer. Flick through the pages of any yachting magazine and you'll see pictures of asymmetrics that are flying far too high above the bow because their luffs are too short to haul them right down to the stem/pole. On a closer reach it is essential that the luff is long enough to bring the tack right in to the centre-line, otherwise most of the sail's power will drag you sideways rather than forwards. Contrary to what some sailmakers want you to believe "one size doesn't fit all"
