Continuous line Code and Gennaker furler for all headsails which are set flying
For all reaching and downwind sails and especially the Rolly Tasker Sails Code C which is set on its own straight luff with anti-torsion rope. For ease of hoisting, manoeuvring and recovering large, free hoisting headsails. Designed by active sailors for trouble-free, easy operation on board. The special, quick-release connecting bolts on both the furler and the top swivel can easily be opened and closed even with cold and numb fingers.
Robust and clever
Clever design and robust construction, milled from a single piece of hard adonized 7075 aluminium as a guarantee for resistance to even the most severe conditions at sea. Robust and compact furler and top swivel, designed for a load of 2.5 tons with breaking strength at 5 tons. Enclosed stainless-steel ball bearings for easy furling even under heavy load. Easy to feed 10-millimetre line which makes for a good grip in the hands.
Designed by experienced sailors
The Sveggen furling gear has been developed by the French engineer David Bonnafois from Lyon, who also is a very experienced yachtsman. As the owner of a specialised company that makes highly complex parts for watches, helicopters and the aerospace industry and as an active sailor, he decided to design and make a furling gear for his own boat. After four prototypes, this model is the result of intensive practical testing on the water, helped by input also from his fellow sailors. In this manner, he has over time succeeded in achieving his goal: To make a furler that is easy and reliable to use, even in adverse conditions. It is both robust and reliable.
The Sveggen furling gear is the ideal companion for our Code C sail, making the handling of this exciting and versatile cruising sail extremely simple and trouble-free even for shorthanded crews.
