New Hydranet radial Genoa for cruising

For some time Bella has been successfully using a second hand UK Salis genoa for cruising, well the time has come to change it and Sanders Salis are about to take delivery of the cloth to build a new Hydranet radial Genoa.

The new sail should be ready for mid-April and will mean that she has a powerful genoa for general cruising purposes.

A Hydranet Radial cloth has been chosen as it is a strong sail with tightly woven polyester fabric and a supporting warp and fill grid of Dyneema® yarncloth which makes it ideal for general sailing use cruising.

Bellas sails take relatively high loads as a result of her size and we are confident that this new sail cloth will hold its shape for some time to come.

The target was to have a 150% genoa but in the end the size had to be reduced by 100mm to enable a good cut and to enable the helm to have some visibility under the sail.

This new Genoa compliments the set of North sails which Bella carries for racing.
