Product DescriptionBe ready for really light winds with this giant sail. You'll have it mounted on spars already, so the switch from your existing sail will be fast. Mast slide included (see item 4992 for lower price without mast slide or item 4990 for sail only). This sail is like our 55 SF sail except the boom is also extended, like the top spar. Heavy duty mast recommended, as with the 55 SF sail. We would not use this sail above 12 mph winds. Best under 10. Terrific value pricing. Color: 2-tone blue (sail B) only. Although we say this is for light winds, at least one of our customers has ignored this limitation with no ill results.
The following was posted to the Snark Sailboat Owners Yahoo group by TCraig: "Just went sailing today with my Snark Sunflower with the 66 sq.ft. sail. The wind was gusting to 23mph and the Sunflower was tearing along at 4.5 mph for 2 miles per my Iphone gps app. I think that would be a top speed for the Sunflower. I had to really hike out to keep from capsizing and the mast was bending like crazy with the gusts but the mast was ok in the end. I mention this in case anyone is considering upgrading to the large 66 sq ft sail from the 55 sq ft sail. Be prepared for some energetic sailing!"
