Lagoon 450 furling Gennaker

Hi Guys

Just one question

is anybody out there Sailing a Top Down Furling Gennaker on a L 450 ?

If Yes how is it working

We have a Parasailor and a Code 0.

But sometimes a quick furling Gennaker would be perfect for the Windangle behind 100 deg AWS

Re: Lagoon 450 furling Gennaker

On the L400 / L440 / L450

the furling code 0 is a Genacker, isn't it?
The jib is a smal Genova in fact.

And what is a top-down furling genacker?, there are in boom furling main sails, but Genacker???

Re: Lagoon 450 furling Gennaker

I've been trying to find a solution to this for a while. I've got a sock for our gennaker now which i think is better cause it's quite a light fabric and the wind would always blow it out when furled.

I'd like something a bit thicker that would furl and stay furled. Like you say, 100awa to 160awa. Or indeed something that could be wing and winged with the genoa.

I've got the Facnor furler but would need the anti torsion wire (very expensive) and the top down adapter here: https://www.upffront.com/facnor-fx-1...p-down-adapter

Might help in some research for you.

Hi Dave,

The solution is getting closer.

1.) Code D from Code-D, le spi qui s\'enroule par Deltavoiles

or

2.) Maybe better from one Sails without a torsion cable

It works just like it does on any other cat that has a spinnaker halyard. L450 or ZZ590. Read it works well.



Top furling is second best system for AWS 100 sails. It is best choice for long luff sails, normally asym and sym spinnakers and G3 style sails.


Note at least two top down can be used with regular 'short' kites with minimum mod only. Available from at least Selden but I bet also Harken, Facnor and Karver.



Cheers,
b.
