Alisio Furling Genoa - Woven Polyester, Cruising Dacron

This furling genoa is made from a tightly woven polyester cloth, keeping the nice white look for years and years to come. The cross-cut sail design is a widely used design that is a very price conscious choice. You have options to add a reef compensator which flattens the sail as it is furled which makes the sail more efficient when reefed, and UV protection in leech and foot for a longer lasting sail.

The woven polyester used for our ALISIO segment is a durable and economical fabric ideal for recreational cruising.

    Jib - no battens

    Sail Type
    The all-round jib is the working headsail for upwind sailing in most wind conditions when there is no furling gear to handle the sail. It is sheeted in front of the shrouds which gives the possibility of being trimmed with a narrow sheeting angle.

    Some options are e.g. trim stripes, different clew and tack attachments, race head and foil bag. A reef could also be fitted to this sail as that will reduce the area to a typical heavy weather jib area.

    Layout
    Available in crosscut, trioptimal and EPEX.

    When to use
    The all-round jib can be used in most wind conditions.
  • Jib - short battens

    Jib - short battens

    Sail Type
    The all-round jib is the working headsail for upwind sailing in most wind conditions when there is no furling gear to handle the sail. It is sheeted in front of the shrouds which gives the possibility of being trimmed with a narrow sheeting angle.

    The sail may be with or without battens. If you choose battens, normally the top batten will be full and the lower ones short. A sail with battens will be wider in the upper parts and thus more efficient.

  • Furling Jib - no battens

    Furling Jib - no battens

    Sail Type
    The furling jib is the working headsail for upwind sailing in most wind conditions. It is sheeted in front of the shrouds which gives the opportunity of being trimmed with a narrow sheeting angle.

    The sail may be with or without battens. If you choose battens, they will be parallel with the forestay to make the furling work perfectly. A sail with battens will be slightly bigger than without battens. Some other options are trim stripes, different clew attachments, UV cover in foot and leech.

  • Selftacking Jib

    Selftacking Jib

    Sail Type
    The self-tacking jib is the working headsail for upwind in most wind conditions when there is no furling gear to handle the sail, and you are going to sheet it on your self-tacking track.

    The sail may be with or without battens. If you choose battens, normally the top batten will be full and the lower ones short. A sail with battens will be wider in the upper parts and thus more efficient. For many boats/rigs the self-tacking jib may be small in light conditions. A Code 0 sail could in other words be very good to combine with the self-tacker to be able to fully enjoy the sailing in all conditions.

    In addition to battens, other options are e.g. clew board, trim stripes, different tack attachments and race head foil bag.

  • Genoa

    Genoa

    Sail Type
    The genoa is a sail that overlaps the mast. Normally the LP (perpendicular measurement from clew to luff) is between 135- 150% of the boats J-measurement. This makes the sail efficient in light and medium winds.

    Since the sail overlaps the rig, battens are not possible. The luff can be attached to the forestay with foil, metal hooks or soft hanks of different types.

    Some of the options available are e.g. different tack and clew attachments, telltale windows, trim stripes and race zipperbag.

    Layout
    The sail is available in crosscut, trioptimal and EPEX.

    When to use
    The genoa is efficient in light and medium winds.
