Simmer Icon 5.6

Jun 20, 2009

Luff: 440 Boom: 180
Web: simmerstyle.eu
Shaped to work in any wind and wave setup, Simmer goes beyond an all-grid build to beef up the Icon with the doubled-over Dacron luff panel and outhaul O-ring. Despite this, it can be tuned to feel very light with a low and forward draft. Those seeking immediate grunt can bag the Icon without raising the draft, but the sail’s elasticity can be overwhelming once powered. With more downhaul tension, the Icon retains its shape through gusts and has the on-off ability of a true wavesail. But, tune carefully as it is very responsive to small downhaul adjustments. On flatter water its wave bias translates to a lightness and control that stands out in every transition. The Icon is the perfect sail for riders looking to rip waves one day and huck moves on flatwater the next.
