The Simmer Blacktip is a common sail to see in the line up with good reason, offering a super light, controllable but powerful sail it's a dream to use. 

The sail is in good condition with it still being a very current model it does show some signs of wear with some creases in the panels from rigging but nothing that would affect performance. Overall the condition of the sail is 8/10. Please don't hesitate to ask for any further questions or request anymore pictures. 

 

For 2020 Sail Designer Tomas Persson and top PWA competitor Marc Paré have re-designed every size from 3.1 to 5.9 to deliver the best possible performance in all imaginable conditions. The smaller sizes have been designed with a narrower luff for direct handling and improved control in stronger winds. The width of the mast sleeve gradually increases towards the larger sizes to generate the perfect blend of power and balance. The winning characteristics for the 2020 Blacktip are its ultra-light and direct handling combined with an extremely wide wind range. The compact outline and medium to low aspect ratio provides powerful front-end drive to generate speed in turns.

New for 2020 are precision tapered battens on the lower two battens. The taper is designed to push the sail profile forward and keep draft locked in for stability. For 2020 we have also made some refined technical advancements which combined create a more effective sail. The new luff features more curve in the top 25%, but with a breaking point for the twist lower down in the sail. This allows the sail body and mast to generate more energy which effectively creates a more dynamic sail body. Vertical shaping techniques allow us to create a more harmonious sail profile which results in a more even skin tension between all areas of the sail.

Features

  • The three kevlar stretch control tendons combined with a progressive batten layout secures the sail profile giving the sail a wide wind range.
  • A lower positioned clew ring to respond to a more upright sailing position, seen in multi-fin sailing.
  • Low-end power for early planing, high cut foot combined with a relatively short boom for manoeuvrability.
  • Superb ability to de-power in the critical moment of a manoeuvre and very forgiving handling characteristic.
  • Bulletproof durability with PVC main window.
  • Seams aligned along the directions of the load lines to distribute the forces.
