In this paper the results of wind tunnel tests on two different asymmetric spinnakers are presented. During these tests forces and flying shapes at different apparent wind angles and trims were recorded by 6DoF balance and photogrammetry. As these tests are intended as a validation benchmark for FSI simulations on downwind sails, the sail moulds, incident flow data as well as measured forces and flying shapes will be made publically available.
