The Cosmic has good power and planes very early while maintaining exceptional performance through a wide range of use. The outline with the cross boom batten combined with the dropped clew keeps the center of effort low and the boom length moderate. Closing the gap is enhanced by the low foot outline. As with all 2013 sails I cut excess roundings off the outline of the Cosmic. I modified the leech twist parameters to make it open a bit more low as we learned from the development of the Vapor sails. This makes the twist more smooth and the power output more balanced and progressive. The shape in front at the 2 cambers was increased to make it pull more from the front. As with all our flatwater sails we used the new colored and UV resistant C-Film which is like a trademark of the new Gaastra sails making them immediately recognizable on the water. The radial panel layout smoothly distributes the loads inside the sail body and enhances stability and performance" comments Peter.
Bottom Line: It will be hard to find any sail that will come close to the two Cam Cosmic. A locked in shape that delivers greatness for all flat water conditions. Use of C-Film // for better durability and performance Radial Panel Layout 2G: improved layout for perfect and locked in sail shape, smooth profile, twist control and durability 3D EVA mast protector // for maximum shock-absorbing and minimal weight 3D mast head protector // for maximum shock-absorbing and minimal weight dropped clew -// shorter boom, improved lower twist fifth batten crosses the boom area -// more power and performance Balanced twist -// progressive and smooth acceleration 2 small cams -// performance and locked profile 3D mast head protector // for maximum shock-absorbing and minimal weight
