The Hanse Crossover Sail

Hanse Crossover Sail

Sept 6, 2016

The Hanse CROSSOVER SAIL was developed by Elvstrøm specifically for Hanse yachts. It has an asymmetrical cut and consists of lightweight CZ laminate.

The Hanse CROSSOVER SAIL is thereby very easy to handle. The sail is delivered with its own forestay and integrated furling system with which it can be installed and rolled out in no time. It is being fixed to the anchor fitting and the gennaker halyard and sailed via any winch in the cockpit. It can remain attached as a second forestay. This creates a unique opportunity to enjoy exciting downwind courses without having to set and take down the sail. Hanse thus fulfills its promise – Fast Cruising and Easy Sailing, on every course!

The highlight of the Hanse CROSSOVER SAIL is the large application range, which extends from 65 to 135 degrees to the wind. The new sail is stowed in a specially designed sail bag on the foredeck.

The size of the Hanse CROSSOVER SAIL depends on the model and is about twice the size of the self-tacking jib. On a Hanse 455, this means – 44 m² self-tacking jib with 92.6 m² Hanse CROSSOVER SAIL. This sail size is particularly recommended for light winds and accelerates the Hanse to unimaginable speeds. Thus, it is also a green alternative to the engine and protects the environment with each nautical mile sailed.

The new Hanse CROSSOVER SAIL is available for both new as well as delivered Hanse yachts.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.
