A North Cruising Gennaker is a free-flying, asymmetric spinnaker tacked to the bow or sprit and does not require a spinnaker pole, special hardware or rigging. North Gennakers are offered in three distinct models (Close Reacher, All-Purpose, Runner), one of which will be a perfect fit depending on your boat’s performance parameters and your preferred wind range. All Cruising Gennaker models feature a wide steering groove to ensure maximum versatility, which is especially important when cruising at night or by autopilot.

* G1 and G2 Gennakers are compatible with North Snuffer Plus™ or external rope top-down furlers.
** G Zero Gennakers are compatible with North Snuffer Plus™ or internal luff rope top-down or bottom-up furlers.
