Re: Code D sail

Hi James
I’ m not on the boat until december and do not have the exact data of the sail. Mine was made by the shop in Port Camargue  S France in 2015. 
Mr Ferrari might have those data...
It ‘s ca 130 sqm. 
Do you plan to have a bow sprit installed and where will the hallyard be (above or below the genoa hallyard)?
I had quite a strugle to make everything wirk without chaffing issues

Thank you Gerald.  Yes, I am aware of the Delta Voiles sail.  For lack of a better name, some seem to refer to it as a Code D, since it is somewhere between a Code zero and an asymmetric spinnaker.  Sort of like Kleenex perhaps.  Is there is another term I should use to refer to this type of sail?

Do you happen to know the dimensions of your sail and cloth weight?

Code D is a registered name by Delta voiles....
So what the turkish sail maker is manufacturing is... something else
