Sizes: 3.0, 3.4, 3.7, 4.0, 4.2, 4.5, 4.7, 5.0, 5.3, 5.7m.
Mast recommendations: As for the Ice. The Voodoo is also designed so that all sizes can, if required, be set on a 400 mast. We didn’t try setting the Voodoo on any masts other than the North Platinum.
Set: The Voodoo is a fully X-ply sail built for strength with a stretchy but tough vinyl window. It comes with an impressive five-year guarantee. It has an identical outline to the Ice but is more elastic with softer spring in the body. It is very similar in set to the Ice but with more twist going further down the leech and less batten rotation.
Performance: The Voodoo seems to set deeper than the Ice and develop more bottom end power, with the vinyl window almost certainly contributing to its more springy feel. It is slightly easier to sheet correctly and more relaxing to sail than the Ice but it doesn’t have the same very immediate, direct and light feel, appearing a bit slower with more delay in its response. In more overpowered conditions the Voodoo needs to be reset with greater tension but it has a good range if tuned correctly. It is good in harsh chop as it breathes and absorbs the shocks allowing the sailor to maintain their stance.
+ Bottom end power, top end stability, soft feel and good durability
– Lacks immediacy and needs tuning
