EASYNUFFER LITE - TOP QUALITY AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE
Recommended for all downwind sails made of coloured sailcloth up to a length of 18 m.
The generously sized maintenance opening enables hassle-free, convenient and quick checking of the connection between sail and snuffing funnel. The optionally available soft shackle – which we recommend for long-distance sailing – can be installed here, as well.
The durable and breathable micro-mesh material glides over the sail with extreme ease and ensures that your downwind sail is well ventilated and dries quickly.
The Easysnuffer's reefing line is guided through separate line channels attached on the outside. This more elaborate design ensures that your sail runs smoothly through the snuffing funnel. This prevents damage or tangling of the line on the sail.
Coloured clew connections prevent the sail from twisting in the snuffing funnel, even when the system is stowed in the smallest of spaces. Thanks to the colour mark, you always have a good overview.
Oval, impact-resistant ABS funnel
Optimised for all common hatch sizes, the impact-resistant oval ABS funnel helps you hoist and furl your sail with ease. The oval shape of the funnel prevents the snuffing funnel from twisting at the masthead during sailing and makes stowing easy.
Simply measure the length of the edges of your sail. This will give you the length your Easysnuffer should have. Your dealer or we will be happy to assist you.
To find the right Easysnuffer length for your gennaker, you should measure the shorter edge. This way, the clew of the shorter edge does not disappear in the snuffing funnel and can easily be fastened for stowing. This prevents the sail from twisting in the Easysnuffer.
Safety first is the motto for every product we develop. When developing the Easysnuffer, we decided against using an air funnel for the following reason: If the funnel were to slacken when the sail is hoisted, it would be very difficult to pull the snuffing funnel back down over the hoisted sail and to furl it without causing any damage. In addition, tests have shown that handling the air pump on the foredeck becomes extremely challenging, especially in heavy seas.
Our micro-mesh material is a robust warp-knitted fabric produced in Germany that was specially developed for demanding outdoor use. Warp-knitted fabric is not actually woven, but rather crocheted, so to speak. The advantage here is that the resistance to further tearing in the event of damage is significantly higher than that of woven fabrics. A tear is therefore less likely to tear any further. Our warp-knitted material is also much more breathable due to the way it is knitted, which makes it possible to dry a wet sail inside the snuffing funnel. The slightly higher weight is a disadvantage we gladly accepted given the significantly greater sturdiness.
