Code Zero / top genoa / light wind sail
Field of application
For furling large, flying Code Zeros / top genoas or light wind sails. The sail furls around an AT (low-torsion) line, which is sewn into the luff of the sail. It is bent onto the furler and swivel by means of special thimbles that are spliced into the end of the furling axle. The Code 0 is usually bent onto the bow fitting or the bowsprit, in front of the fixed forestay. The furled out sail can be dropped and re-hoisted very easily. The endless line can be removed from the furler quickly by hand and can remain on deck if the sail needs to be bent onto the furler. The angle of the line feed out of the furler can be fixed in 12 different positions.
Competition or Performance – the choice is yours!
The Competition Series is composed almost entirely of high-strength and seawater-resistant aluminium. Products in this series have a matt black finish and are coated in hard-anodised aluminium. This series is approximately 30% lighter than the Performance Series. These low-weight solutions are highly rated by serious racing sailors for their high load capacity and reliability.
The Performance Series is manufactured from 100% seawater-resistant stainless steel. All products have a polished silk-matt finish. Performance furlers and swivel are particularly robust and favoured by leisure sailors and cruisers alike.
Dual use – furling Code Zero sails and gennakers:
A Code Zero furling system can be converted to a gennaker furling system by attaching a tack swivel. The tack swivel can be bent straight onto the furler, or attached via an adapter in the jaw of the furler. Using an adapter allows for very quick sail changes, for example, between the Code Zero and gennaker. The tack swivel and tack strop remain on the gennaker AT line, for example, when changing to a Code Zero.
