The FACNOR model SD is the easiest Reefing System in the world to install. You will see, it is designed for a quick and simple installation. It can be fitted without precise measurement of the forestay, AND WITHOUT CUTTING ANY SECTIONS, because of the unique and patented, telescopic lower section. This provides all the length adjustment necessary. The FACNOR system slides over the forestay and turnbuckle. In this way, the integrity of the rig is maintained and allows full adjustment of the forestay. The halyard swivel ensures an efficient sail shape for ideal furling. The swivel and the drum assembly,...

I- RAISING SAIL AND FURLING: The hoisting of the sail does not present any difficulties, however you should remember that it will require slightly more effort than with jib hanks on sail.

(Sail with luff tape have more friction than those with jib hanks). — It is not necessary to have as much halyard...

FURLING - REEFING TIPS (next): When unfurling, restrain the reefing line so that it doesn’t jerk out of hand. Keep line under control as you furl and mind that it does not overlap. When you reef, do not forget to move your genoa car to insure the right tension on the genoa leach and foot and that the genoa sheet lead is correct. Check that the forestay is tight and clear of other halyards. Never slacken the genoa halyard when furling. Cleat the furling line and secure jib sheets when you reach the desired reef. Do not force the reefing system if the reefing lines get blocked. It is recommended...
