PWA WORLD TOUR WINDSURFING LIVE STREAM
The final stop of the PWA World Tour takes place in Noumea / New Caledonia. GUNSAILS team rider Julien Quentel, currently ranked 4th, is fighting for a place on the podium.

PERFECTION IN MATERIAL AND WORKMANSHIP
Our sail designer Renato Morlotti is not only responsible for the performance of the sails, he also takes care of every single detail of the workmanship. As a qualified sailmaker, he passes on his knowledge to all those involved in production and trains the team for the special quality requirements that our sails must meet. No matter which model you choose, you will receive a quality-tested GUNSAILS sail with a 24-month guarantee.
INTELLIGENT MATERIAL ASSEMBLY
The well-designed combination of different materials allows weight savings without losing stability. By varying the stretch behaviour of the individual materials, we can precisely define each sail profile under pressure and guarantee you consistent sail characteristics over the long term.
CROSS BATTEN CONCEPT
Often used in flatwater sails with a big surface in the boom area. The longest batten of the sail starts under the boom and ends above the clew. In this area the deepest profile as well as the largest surface of the sail is located. The Cross Batten stabilizes this area, especially when pumping. The pressure point remains stable.
SYMMETRICAL BATTEN SYSTEM
The alternating arrangement of the sail battens on the front and back of the sail allows a balanced tension and weight ratio. With this feature you have the same sail feeling, no matter which direction you are driving.
3D WING SLEEVE
The aerodynamic optimized mast sleeve resembles the shape of a wing and allows maximum power output. An additional Kevlar Warp laminate in the middle of the mast sleeve acts as an anchor and holds the 3D profile in its predefined shape. Thus, the pressure point remains stable and the sail accelerates tirelessly forward.
The new clew claws are easy to handle and additionally stabilize the centered position of the clew. They are two stable plastic claws screwed to the clew, into which the rope only has to be hooked.
The boom opening on the GS-R and Vector is closed by a neoprene cover. This reduces windfall into the mast sleeve and improves aerodynamics. In addition, less water flows into the mast sleeve, so you can start faster.
Through the zipper openings you can easily reach the cambers and can gently roll them on to the mast. Also, the tuning with spacers is easier then.
The GS-R and the Vector are equipped with a Tack Strap, with which the foot tension can be regulated. This will allow you to reduce the twist of the lower edge to lee and absorb even more power.
Multidirectional X-Ply is used in high stress areas. The thread layout shows a higher density of polyester yarn, thus making the material more resistant than the regular X-Ply. The additional vertical thread direction allows the material to take more tension and force in the critical tension line.
The Square-Ply is based on the same concept as X-Ply material. However, the threads are aligned in a 90 degree angle and the material offers a higher overall thread density. That allows us to reduce the thickness of the included monofilm to save weight, but ensure durability at the same time.
KEVLAR STRETCH CONTROL
The targeted use of Kevlar Warp laminate allows us to precisely determine the stretch characteristics of each sail, ensuring a consistent sail profile and more response. The extremely light, unidirectional Kevlar threads have a very low stretch, even under highest loads. They are specifically positioned in each sail depending on its area of use. With Kevlar Stretch Control you will permanently find consistent characteristics and performance in your sail.
GS-R CAMBER MIX
Our cambers have external rolls and can therefore be gently attached to the mast. Once in position, the rollers also reduce friction on the mast, making the rotation much softer. Depending on the position and diameter of the mast, there are four different cambers to choose from. By exchanging the cambers and using different spacers, the sail setup can be converted from RDM to SDM, e.g. at the 6.3 GS-R. Tips for your individual conversion are available in a video on our homepage under /rigging-guide.
Choosing the right batten type in the right position is a decisive factor for influencing the profile. The GS-R uses up to three different tube diameters to precisely control the profile. Lightweight 9 and 11 mm tubes in the top area to control the twist, stiffer 14mm tubes in the boom area, where the sail pressure is the highest.
