3 ) The cover does not offer a large surface to the wind hurting performance too ? ‘s Sleeve SOCK – JIB ® forms a AERODYNAMIC PROFILE amazing , much better than the one genoa partially wound . In navigations test , when comparing identical yachts with Sock- Jib ® and storm we could not observe differences in the rate or luff angle , even in high winds.

Breaks usually occur where there is great pressure on a small surface , not when is distributed over a large area as in the case of Sock- Jib ®

5) that has surface ? The Sock- Jib ® is a system with which we can design a jib or TORMENTIN to be hoisted on rolling genoa . Our experience of years and thousands of miles sailed with Sock- Jib ® TORMENTIN indicate that the most appropriate is sailing to the system.

We can design and manufacture sails according to special characteristics of a yacht or navigation type to do , where they are needed.
