The light wind sail set on one's own stay is becoming more and more universal in use, developing from a specialist into a multi-talent. This makes the Code Zero the ideal addition to the modern sail plan, which usually comes with small foresails. But it can also serve well on older boats and possibly even come on board instead of a gennaker. The report clarifies in which wind range the sail works well, what its special features are, which shapes there are and which peripherals are necessary on board.
By the way, autumn is the perfect time to order sails, companies have more time and discounts are sometimes tempting. A good place to get an overview and to be able to talk to several sailmakers one after the other is the Hamburg Boat Show (from October 17th to 21st).
