OneSails launches the gennaker retriever in the J70 class

At the end of many testing sessions carried out on Garda lake by Dede De Luca and Samuele Nicolettis, the system fulfills the expectations and is ready to optimize hoist and drop maneuvers of the J70 gennaker.

"The retriever has always been one of my commitments " said a really satisfied Dede De Luca really at the end of the tests. “I’m confident that its use allows helmsmen and tacticians to turn leeward marks optimizing the course without having to worry about the maneuver. In addition the crew can handle the boat faster and safer, saving time and concentrating better on the boat’s trim."

Getting the best from the system requires some fittings to be set up on the boat and the sails. Additionally, good team work and commitment from the crew is very important.

The final set up of the retriever system is an achievement of the whole OneSails team. Last winter, OneSails attended all the J70 class events in Montecarlo. The team was also committed with speed tests and sea trials on Garda Lake and in Ancona. Now the OneSails' gennaker retriever system is ready to be to delivered to J70 Class sailors as a full performance package for the 2016 racing season.
