Melges 24 Spinnakers

Melges 24 A2 Runner Airx 650

The Quantum A2 is a class favorite for a reason. Its versatility and power are unmatched as an all-purpose runner. The A2 spinnaker is perfect in 6-11 knots when the jib is furled and you are sailing deep and low angles. It allows you to continue to soak into the 12-14 knot range. The end result? You sail five degrees lower than the competition while staying on a lazy plane and going fast. This max-sized, all-purpose runner is made out of Airx 650 for durability and great shape retention. Available in a variety of colors and patterns. Be sure to ask about add-on graphic options.

INCLUDES: Sail bag, adjustable luff and leech lines, class royalty, and ISAF measurement sticker.

Melges 24 A2.5 Reacher Airx 650

The Quantum A2.5 max sized reacher will be your go to secret weapon on the racecourse when you want to be bow up and ripping. The A2.5 is optimized for jib out sailing downwind in the 0-6 TWS range as well as the 14+ TWS range.  The A2.5's higher clew and straighter luff allow the sail to twist off so the boat unloads and can sail faster at higher angles. It also makes for easier driving with an unloaded helm. This sail is fast in waves and chop where the premium is placed on driving and correct heel angle. Top teams love this sail in breeze when boat control is paramount.  Made of AirX 650 in a variety of colors and patterns. Be sure to ask about add-on graphic options.

INCLUDES: sail bag, adjustable luff and leech lines, class royalty, and ISAF measurement sticker.
