The gennaker is deployed from a sock (not quite fully hoisted in these images). Although designed for angles of 80-155 degrees.  The sail will get as close as 60 degrees if a tweaker is used to pull the clew down towards the rail.  It will also go to 170 degrees if flown high above the pull pit rail.
