The power and acceleration achieved when unfurling a Code 0 or an asymmetric spinnaker is spectacular. It will make your sailing more fun. Simply hoist the furled sail, release the furling line, pull on the sheet and you have added horse power to your sailing and given your crew a positive sailing experience. To furl the sail, ease the sheet, pull the continuous furling line and secure it in the purpose made Twin Cam block. Once the sail is furled it can be neatly dropped and coiled into a bag or left hoisted for later use. Seldén provide all necessary accessories for safe and carefree furling of “off-the-wind” sails.
Seldén GX drum and halyard swivel and an AT-cable is included in the kit.
The drum and the halyard swivel are permantly fitted to the sail with the Seldén line lock. Connect the drum to the bow and the spinnaker halyard to the halyard swivel. Lead the furling line to the cockpit by using Seldén Double Fairleads on the stanchions, tighten the furling line and secure it in the Twin-Cam block. Thereafter hoist the furled sail
The AT-cable is integrated in the luff of the sail and thimbles connect the luff to the drum and to the halyard swivel. Special Cable clamps are required to fit the thimbles to the Seldén AT-cable. A dedicated halyard for Code 0 is required and 2:1 purchase is recommended to obtain the required luff tension and to reduce the load on the halyard sheave and on the line stoppers. The drum and the furling line can be permanently mounted to the bow and along the stanchions.
Seldén CX, for top-down furling of an asymmetric spinnaker/gennaker.
This is an alternative to GX allowing the drum and the furling line to be mounted permanently. Snap in the furled gennaker and hoist it using the spinnaker/gennaker halyard.
A Seldén CX drum is combined with a Free Tack Adapter and a GX halyard swivel, both of them with Seldén line lock. The furled sail with the Adapter is connected to the drum and the sail is hoisted with the spinnaker halyard. The drum and the furling line can be permanently mounted to the bow and along the stanchions. When preparing the gennaker for hoisting, half the job is already done.
Seldén CX, for Code 0 & top-down furling of an asymmetric spinnaker/gennaker.
This is an all-in-one solution for the sailor using both Code 0 and gennaker and prefers using one halyard for both applications.
A Seldén CX drum and halyard swivel for thimbles are used both for the Code 0 sail and an additional gennaker. Connect the sail suitable for the prevailing conditions to the drum and to the halyard swivel and hoist the furled sail using the Code 0 halyard. The Free Tack Adapter is permanently fitted to the tack of the asymmetric spinnaker/gennaker with the Seldén line lock. The drum and the furling line can be permanently mounted to the bow and along the stanchions.
