Cruising and Racing Sails
MZ4 Cruising Storm - Jibs
The Storm Jib is used in winds too strong for any heavy weather Jib. Short hoist and a hollow leech and foot to prevent the edges from fluttering. It is designed to fly from a pennant to keep the sail above breaking waves.
When the wind exceeds the range of your heavy weather jib, then it is time to hoist your MZ Storm Jib (usually on winds over 35 knots). The sail features a short hoist at no more than 65% of the length of the luff. Features a hollow leech and hollow foot to prevent the edges from damage under heavy flogging. The storm jibs are made out of strong woven polyester. The bright orange color makes it highly visible.
Even though the sail is design to be hoist on your regular foil, for safety reasons the sail must have an alternative way of being attached to the stay. All MZ Storm Jibs feature grummets on the luff.
MZ Storm Sails are guaranteed for 2 years against faulty workmanship or damage due to sailcloth manufacturing, subject only to proper maintenance and being used in appropriate wind conditions. Regular wear and tear are not covered.
