The Aero Furling Spar, with the furling system incorporated within the spar,
is recommended for performance sailing

  • Spar enables genoa to be furled
    without compromising the sail’s

  • Spar extremely lightweight – weighs
    less than 0.5kg

  • Spar has diameter of 8mm – only
    marginally increasing the luff
    entry shape of the 3mm diameter
    luff wire

  • Spar raises foot of genoa only
    10 to 15mm higher than a standard
    racing genoa

  • Furling the genoa before the start of
    a race provides the helm with a
    clear vision for manoeuvring into
    an optimum position in the final
    countdown to the start gun

  • Furling the genoa on a run provides
    the crew with a clear vision for
    setting the spinnaker

  • Furling the genoa for launching
    prevents the wear and tear on the
    sail caused by the sail flogging in
    stronger wind conditions

  • Furling the genoa when coming in
    to land gives the helm better vision
    and more control

  • Solid eye ends of the spar fitted to
    bow and genoa halyard as any
    standard racing genoa
