Top Down Furling

When it comes to asymmetric spinnakers, top down furling is the best solution for bringing in your sail. The concept first appeared on maxi yachts before filtering down to more modestly-sizes sailing boats.

Thanks to the swivel tack, the sail can be furled from the top downward to progressively stifle the sail without creating a jam.

Why choose Spinex?

Using asymmetric spinnakers in some conditions can be dangerous. With the Spinex, you're going to rediscover the joys of this type of sailing because it allows you to:-

· Easily handle this type of sail (even short handed)
· Remain in the safety of the cockpit
· Improve the performance of your sailing boat by using downwind sails

Which sails?

The Spinex is designed to furl flying sails with a loose luff, such as asymmetrical spinnakers.





Frequently asked questions about furling an asymmetric spinnaker:-

Can I use my exsisting asymmetric spinnaker?
Yes, the Spinex is designed to be used with existing asymmetric spinnakers.

Can I use it to furl my symmetrical spinnaker?
No, the Spinex is designed for asymmetric spinnakers only.

Can I furl other kinds of flying sail?
Yes, by removing the swivel tack and the end fittings, the SPINEX becomes a NEX and can be used to furl flying sails such as gennakers and code zeros.

I already have a furler, such as a NEX or other, can I use it for furling my asymmetric spinnaker?
Yes, all you have to do is get the SPIN KIT which includes the swivel tack and the end fittings. It can also be fitted to the systems of some competing brands.

Can I partially furl my asymmetric spinnaker?
No, it's an all or nothing system which requires you to furl the entire sail.

Is the SPINEX heavy or cumbersome?
The SPINEX is heavier than a classic system but the cable and the balls ensure optimum performance. So it's a question of compromise. However, once furled, the SPINEX can be easily stowed in the sail bag.
