420 battened jib

28.01.2013

Since 1st January 2013, the international class regulations for the 420 allow the use of battened jibs.

The inclusion of battens along the leech enables a considerable improvement in performance and the maintenance of quality of sail and fabric even in extreme wind conditions.

Olimpic Sails has already tested the battened jib with a number of different athletes and trainers and has chosen to produce both job models (SV5 and SV5-F) with 2 battens; this makes it possible to maintain the same performance as the previous sails in light winds and to improve it in stronger wind conditions.
