V-Series Symmetric Spinnakers
Superior reaching/running performance for boats with spinnaker poles




North’s powerful V-Series symmetrics are the world’s leading choice for boats equipped with spinnaker poles. They have been developed and refined using the University of Auckland Twisted Flow Wind Tunnel and North’s remarkable Virtual Wind Tunnel™ downwind flow simulation software. The result is a versatile symmetric spinnaker that delivers more power and less drag than any other symmetric spinnaker. V-Series symmetrics feature North TrueRadial construction, which shapes spinnaker panels on two axes for a smoother profile both vertically and horizontally.

North V-Series symmetrics are available in six different running or reaching “codes.” Each is designed to precisely match your boat, your handicap or rating rule and different wind and sea conditions. The helpful North Downwind Sail Performance Guide compares the range of wind angle and wind strength for each symmetric model.
