We design our IRC Code Zeros to be the must have sail in your inventory. It covers the widest wind range through the greatest wind angles of all your sails. It is ideal for Racing both inshore and offshore fully crewed or shorthanded, combined with an Anti-torsion cable and furler it is also extremely easy to handle. It is designed under the spinnaker rule so it does not effect your IRC rating and will change your sailing inventory both upwind, typically adding 10-20% boat speed increase whilst offering downwind performance benefits such as a wider wind range.
WHY HAVE ONE?
If you're sailing hard on the wind, there's little to choose in performance between a headsail with a longer foot or a short-footed jib designed for self-tacking and ease of handling. However, as soon as you ease sheets, the longer foot brings much more performance. That's where the code zero comes in as an incredibly useful sail. If you only have a short-footed jib, or if you can't hoist a genoa because of the position of the shrouds, then you have a real gap between true wind 55 to 120 degrees.
