The 2 cam sail SUNRAY is a powerful freeride sail with great top speed and easy control in limits. The two cambers deliver a clear low wind benefit in early planing and stabilize the profile when the wind picks up. The handling of the sail, starting with the light rigging up to the sensational soft rotation in jibes or the well balanced position in stronger winds, is a real child's play. No need to be worried about a "complicated" camber sail, the Sunray is suitable for all skill levels. The draft is clearly defined, the distinctive twist absorbs gusts, the sail feels locked and balanced on the board. That means for you "zero effort", you can enjoy sailing for hours.

Compared to the Vector, the SUNRAY is more comfortable to handle thanks to the narrower mast sleeve, and the downhaul tension is more moderate.

Image

FAST RIGGING EASY DOING

F.R.E.D. will help you to fi nd the optimal luff trim for your sail. The mark is found in the upper sail window and serves as an orientation point to create the perfect luff tension (loose leech).

Image

REDUCED BOOM LENGTH

The Reduced Boom Length design shortens the boom length. The handling is much easier and feels more compact. The sail control is signifi cantly improved. A shorter boom is generally stiffer and will assist in maintaining the sail stability and profile.

Image

TOP GUARD

The large reinforcement at the sail top avoids abrasion and wearing out whilst rigging.


Image

VARIO TOP

The top opening is enlarged for an easier mast insertion. The adjustment buckle is placed behind the mast; unnecessary webbing can be stowed in the top opening.

Image

MINI BATTENS

Lightweight mini battens take control of the leech while twisting and avoid detrimental leech fl utter. In this way, the window fabrics are spared and the longevity of the sail is predefined.

Image

BATTEN GUARD

PVC tabs on the upper batten pockets prevent wearing out and abrasion whilst rigging.

Image

INTERNAL TRIM BATTEN

The Internal Trim Batten system is completely integrated into the batten pocket and the battens can stay tensioned in the sail. The profi led end piece offers additional protection against abrasion.

Image

POCKET GUARD

A PVC braid, sewed on the bottom batten pocket, protects your sail from abrasion while uphauling and waterstarting.

Image

OFFSET CLEW

The Wave sails are equipped with 2 clew eyelets which are set asymmetrically for individual tuning.
▲ Upper eyelet for more power
▲ Lower eyelet for more control

Image

BOOM SETTING

The boom length is printed beside the clew.

Image

BOOM POSITION CONTROL

The printed height scale at the boom opening helps you to easily remember your personal boom position. 

Image

SLEEVE VOLUMER

The Gun Sails logo that is sewn on the sleeve keeps it open at the boom opening area like a clip and thus mast insertion is much easier.

Image

MAST FOOT PROTECTOR

The large mast foot protector can be pulled back whilst rigging. The loop eases the initial pulling down of the sail. The uphaul can be comfortably inserted through an opening in the protector.

Image

FOOT GUARD

All seams in the significantly stressed foot area are protected by Dacron coverings. A PVC edging from foot to the first batten protects the leech edge against your board’s nonslip coating.

Image

COMFORT PULLEY

The integrated triple pulley has large easy turning stainless brass rolls which greatly reduce the effort required for sail trimming. Also, if you prefer, the rolls are removable to allow the use of standard downhaul pulley hooks.

Image

MESH POCKET

On the inside of the protector you will find a closable mesh pocket which can hold e.g. your downhaul surplus.

Image

STRAP ON

For very easy packing away and storage: Just roll the sail up and fix the elastic retainer.

THE CAM SAIL TO SUIT EVERYONE

The GUNSAILS has a less imposing surface area under the boom with the largest leech aperture which gives it a more sporty cut. It has a visual trimming guide in the sail to help you set the correct tension at the foot of the mast.

ON THE WATER: In poor wind conditions, the Sunray 7.5 (one of the smaller surface areas) is the least effective of the group when transitioning to planing but also in maintaining it, especially if you have to sail close to the wind. The problem is a lack of power on the back hand, even if you opt for the upper clew position. You'll need to select the 8m2 to increase the number of horses under the bonnet on lakes and in thermal breezes, especially for changing position on the spot. In a steady wind, the Gun accelerates hard and is more effortless than other sails, with less downforce on the back hand. With the fastest top speed, and ease of control in strong winds and choppy seas, it gets close to some Freerace sails when sailing crosswind or close to the wind, but is lighter and less of a burden on the arms. A good model for getting your foot in the door of the "World of Slalom" while having a sail that is easy to raise out of the water (narrow sleeve), very stable, light and easy to handle. Lightweight riders,
and those who like to ride carrying a lot rather than a little sail, will appreciate its finesse in the wind and and its non-physical behaviour. It rolls steeply round the turn and gybes with ease, with a very gentle profile rotation.

VERDICT: Smaller than its rivals, the 7.5 demonstrates a range of wind speeds shifted slightly towards the top end, for lighter riders and in winds that are a little more established. This sporty little model is effortless in the wind, easy to sail for longer and further.

+: Control, stability, profile rotation when gybing, speed, not physically demanding, light once moving.
- : Less power in light winds to keep planing and for sailing close to the wind.
