HORNET 2014

Hornet

Easy performance

Hornet is the sail of choice for sailors looking for easy planing, user-friendly handling and great performance. Six battens support the sail and two IntegraCams hold the profile in place and ensure high stability levels in gusts or when overpowered. The IntegraCams de-load during the rotation of the sail in tacks and gybes making them feel as though they’ve been removed from the sail. The result is cam-free handling in manoeuvres combined with cam-sail straight-line performance and low-end power. Hornet features the revolutionary Forceline Frame construction for dynamic load and shape control and even more durability.

KEY FEATURES

Light and Forgiving: IntegraCams support the profile and allow a six batten layout, keeping the Hornet light with smooth power delivery. Narrow Sleeve for easy handling and effortless water starts. Early Planing through camber induced moderate-deep profile. Instant Rotation thanks to the nature of the IntegraCam that places the leading edge tension just behind the mast as it would be on a no-cam sail.

DESIGNER'S COMMENT

We designed the Hornet to be stable, light in the hands and a super early planer. Using one batten less than the Hellcat, the Hornet powers up early and the IntegraCams shape the entry profile and generate a feeling of lightness in the sail. The sleeve is the same size as a normal no-cam sail so all handling ashore and on the water is as simple and easy. This design configuration is really underrated in our opinion and we encourage you to try it out and see for yourself.
