Swag

16_swag

The first three batten wave sail, which conquered a top 10 result in the PWA wave ranking. This was back in 2012 and today Point-7 presents its fourth generation of development.  Great down the line ultra-light wave sail, combining a positive forward drive when bottom turning with completely neutral backhand pressure when top turning. The swag combines a healthy forward driven profile, which ensures ultra-stability in the rig, and neutrality ideal for pure wave sailing. Be amazed by its wind range!

What’s new

Developed with focus on drive and release at the right points, giving the rider the perfect performance, and great fun. 2016 main evolution focus was to bring the Swag to increase its speed and reactivity. After adapting the cut away concept in 2015, this allowed to go further and bring the sail to gain characteristics that would be hard to find normally on 3 batten wave sails. No flapping when overpowered, no useless drag, increased stability speed, but most importantly it has gained a lot of flow whilst wave sailing and cruising. The leach opening is more central, and there is no need to have disturbing loose leech on the upper part, increasing once again the stability. The new construction has reduced further the weight of the sail. The rotation has been reduced to allow more stability in the jumps, but still keeping the correct amount of ON/OFF profile. A new vario top system is developed which allows to have no extra webbing flapping,if you are using the correct mast, and which is not wearing out while using the sail.

I love this three batten wave sail in side shore\side off condition such as in Maui or Cabo Verde. It was a real Swag. I have never used such a fun wave sail!  Easy and light: a toy in the hands, forgetting that it’s a three batten when I am on it. An amazing sail all round to have fun with a light and easy simple sail, and at the same time a top expert sail for those who get the chance to sail in real wave conditions.
