Hansen B-wave HCL 5.6

Jun 20, 2009

Luff: 443-447 Boom: 170-175

The B-Wave has power and speed for bump-and-jump sailing and durability to handle waves. The Hansen Control Leech (HCL), named for neoprene sections placed in the leech allowing the sail to compliantly adjust its foil shape and twist according to wind pressure and sheeting angle, provides an amazing ability to bleed big gusts without any leech flutter. It rigs up with a fair amount of seam shaping that generates plenty of low-end torque and even with a solid amount of downhaul tension has a higher draft. The B-Wave wants to accelerate as soon as you get aboard and will continue to accelerate you into the air when jumped. The seam shaping makes for stiffer batten rotation in transitions, but the short boom makes rig balance easy to find.
