We use UV resistant Nylon cloth with a weight depending on the size and weight of the boat. Indeed , the more the boat is heavy, and the more important will be the efforts in the spinnaker.
Which is the difference between a reacher, a code 0 and a gennaker ?
A Reacher is a front sail used at reaching. It can be considered as a sail for beating, the reacher has a leesh shorter than a genoa and a longer foot. The explanation is simple : when the wind come from behind the boat, and the genoa is untightened, we realise that it is very hard to manage the tension of the leesh. In this case it is better to use this sail , quite specific, which is more tolerant at the clew at reaching.
The gennaker is an intermediary sail between the genoa and the asymmetric spinnaker. Its name comes from the contradiction of name of these 2 sails. The gennaker is, such as an asymmetric spinnaker, un front sail with a free luff fixed only by its head and tack points. But contrary to the asymmetric spinnaker it is possible to put its luff under tension.
This characteristic combined with a more moderated trough enables to use this sail upper with a moderate wind. The caracteristics of the gennaker make it very efficient between beat and abreast. After that the asymmetric spinnaker is more suitable because more trough. Such as the asymmetric spinnaker, it cannot be used in run. Wind ahead, it must be replaced by a genoa or a jib. Generally these sails are bigger than the genoa : recovering more important, trough. The weight of the sail is intermediate between the one of the spinnaker and the genoa. The gennaker is often set up on a furler.
