This sail was a Quantum A3 spinnaker on board Farr52 “Optimum 3” that exploded after 6 years of service during the 56th Aegean Rally in 2019 at the windy coastal race in Astypalaia. This sail played important role in many Team Optimum victories over its lifespan and allowed “Optimum 3” to reach speeds of over 30 knots.
