Viper 640 Headsails

Viper 640 Spinnakers

Viper 640 Asymmetrical Spinnaker

We've worked closely with our Melges team to design a kite that can handle the demands of a high-performance one-design fleet. We've added shape in the head of the spinnaker to help the boat sail lower and faster off the breeze while still being able to roll over the crowd. Described as the ultimate spinnaker in this class, the R2, made with Dynakote 75, is the largest, lightest sail that gives sailors the widest range of sailing angles so they can sail the race they want.

INCLUDES: Sail bag.

Zane Yoder

Zane Yoder grew up sailing in a baby seat in an O'day Widgeon. At the age of seven, he began racing Sunfish. Once he was hooked, he started racing various boats in the Gulf Yachting Association. His primary focus was one design, but he raced lots of PHRF as well. "My father was an avid racer and he owned and raced lots of different boats, which allowed me to learn from him and some of the best the south had to offer."

Zane's love for the sport grew as he embarked on some major sailing adventures. "I sailed on a Bargue rigged tallship around the world, which included Cape Horn at age 16." Shortly after, he became a member of Team LYRA, a dominant youth racing program. Joining the youth team lead him to become a top Laser sailor and earn a bid for the 1996 Olympics.

Not long after the 96 trials he shifted his focus to 35-75ft boats. He sailed and managed boats for the next 15 years. He raced everything from Melges 24 to Andrews 73 and everything in between. In any given year he would race on 20 different boats. "This made being specialized in any boat difficult, but made me a much better all around sailor."
Zane has also been a sailing coach for most of his life, coaching several athletes that have gone on to win College sailor of the year, and US Sailing Team Honors.
