This spinnaker is the "asymmetrical" spinnaker: a relatively new lightweight development that is much more light-wind efficient than the largest Genoa-jib.



The J80 class is supported in their races by Dennis Connor, esteemed skipper of several "America's Cup" entries over the years. (Decades, even).
