This new 2022 model year sail is a rolling gennaker. The construction is based on the "Code Zero" type of sails. This sail does not have such a depth and balloon shape like the original Gennaker and is slightly smaller in size (7.9 m2), but its usage is much better as it is possible to sail not only on the tailwind, but also on the crosswind and even slightly against the wind.
This special sail comes equipped with furler, so it doesn’t need snuffer as it can be rolled back in similar style as the jib is. It is possible to use this new rolling sail Genna also with the older MiniCat models (420 and 460), but only the ones with the thicker mast.
The existing Gennaker Sail and Snuffer option is still available for the MiniCat 420, but not the MiniCat 460. Only the Code Zero sail is available for the MiniCat 460.
