New release for 2020 - A6mDS.
The A6mDS has evolved from the A3.5mDS, which has won 2 UK national titles in both DS and standard format. At the 2019 UK Nationals the A3.5mDS came first and second. Dylan winning using both the DS and standard version with Brad Funk second using the DS version with a standard A5m for the lighter days.
Further evolution after the Nationals led to the A6mDS. This has a larger DS panel and shorter leech with detail mods to the sleeve shaping which allows a big range of sail shape.
We offer 2 basic versions of the A6mDS. The large DS panel version and a smaller DS panel version that fits the “traditional “ boom mainsheet position. However we strongly recommend moving the mainsheet aft on the boom to accommodate the longer DS panel ( As used by Dylan for the last two seasons and Brad this year). The longer DS panel lowers the heeling moment, increases the endplate effect and increases the likelihood of attached flow.
This is the design Dylan Fletcher would have used if other commitments ( 2020 49er Olympic selection and GP circuit skipper) had not kept him from going to Perth.
The sail is also available to fit masts 4900 to 5100 in length.
