Large Gennakers, Code Zeros, and Staysails are easy to handle using Facnor Gennaker and Code Zero furlers. Our furling system offers many benefits for set-ting or striking the sail. Facnor furlers are equipped with snap shackles for faster hook-ups for setting.
This is also convenient for quickly clearing the foredeck. Code Zeros are very large sails and can be difficult to handle because they are usually set when close reaching, causing the sail to beat against the mast and rigging until full. Hoisting the sail in the furled position offers complete control until the sail is unrolled.
A staysail can be fitted also on a FX+ furler : in this configuration, we recommend to install a 2-to-1 block (halyard better tighteh and less tension in the mast).
