HEADSAIL REEFING AND FURLING SYSTEM
ALADO has self-contained double halyard sheaves to allow fast
sail changes and downwind sailing with twin genoas. Existing sails can be
used after simple
The halyard is led through the sheave, returned and made fast to an
eye on top of the drum. As there are no hanks, high halyard tension is not required and no
halyard loads are applied to the mast.
No swivels are used. This eliminates the possibility of halyard wrap,
which can produce a tourniquet effect, leading to forestay parting and mast collapse.
