About Our Downwind


Most cruising clients use what the industry calls ‘standard’ sails. This is not just about the size of the sail but the shape of the finished product. The wind angles and wind ranges change throughout the sizes.

​Direct-Sails’ standard downwind sails are our most popular as they are easy to handle and durable; they are perfect for the cruising market because the wind angles are flexible enough to allow a cruiser to use them on a fairly broad wind range.

Standard Asymmetrical Spinnaker (estimate wind range: 80 to 155 apparent wind angle)

Standard Symmetrical Spinnaker (estimate wind range: 120 to 180 apparent wind angle)

  • All Stitches are triple stepped zigzag stitching.

  • All Broad-seams are 2 rows of stitching and radial seams are 1 row of stitching.

  • Radial corners. Corner thickness and layer qty will be adjusted based on furling or non furling sails.

  • Corners can be labelled if requested (head, tack and clew stickers identifications)

  • Torsion lines are available upon request


This sail option is a great choice for the sailor who might be ‘solo sailing’ or out on the water with limited crew. Due to its lack of spinnaker pole, the asymmetric spinnaker allows for more versatility on the water, making it an ideal addition to your sail collection.

Our nylon cloth comes with a rip-stop which is woven into the cloth to provide strength and durability.

The lighter the spinnaker, the more expensive.- Direct-Sails uses brand recognized cloths for our spinnakers such as IYU (Mazu), Challenge and Contender.
