Downwind sailing has never been easier or more fun! The Doyle APC has opened up a whole new realm of simple, fun-filled sailing with an easy to set and fly asymmetrical spinnaker. Dousing it is easy and trouble free with the ATN Spinnaker Sleeve.
The APC is designed specifically for the cruising sailor. It is slightly smaller in overall dimensions than the racing APR 90, but has the same attributes.
The even entry allows easier trimming and stabilizes the sail. A flatter leech creates less backwind for better reaching. The longer luff gives the sail more drawing power, and gets more area out in front of the mainsail. This is very effective in the 100-130 degree apparent wind angles. The shorter leech allows the sail to be more easily trimmed on all points of sail. The APC is a stable, powerful sail that will improve your offwind performance. Its unique geometry, combined with an aerodynamic cross sectional shape, allows the sail to fly out away from the boat in undisturbed air. This applies more force on the boat and increases your downwind capability.
ATN Spinnaker Sleeve
The ATN Spinnaker Sleeve is carefully designed to ensure it does not foul the spinnaker when setting or dousing the sail.
The control lines run in their own pockets separate from the sail itself, and consequently cannot get tangled. The sock is made from a loosely woven “slippery” material for friction free usage.
