Gybing remains one the of the most challenging operations of a sailing boat even for experienced sailors and could generate injuries and material damage. An efficient and safe solution is the Gyb Easy Wichard Boom Brake.
One Boom Brake
One Shackle attached to the boom brake and one to the boom saddles.
A specific line withstanding high frictions during the gybe operations.
With Gyb Easy, the gybe operations are safer and potential accidents reduced.
Thanks to the frictions of the specific line passing over the boom brake, the boom is allowed to gybe smoothly.
Benefit - smooth operations without any jerks.
The installation only takes a few minutes: a shackle is attached onto one of the boom saddles.
In order to fit with all deck configurations, 2 different fittings can be implemented.
The Boom Brake can be used either on old gaffers or modern boats.
The adjustment of the boom brake is made thanks to the tension of the specific line.
3 different positions exist for a perfect adaptation to the mainsail area and wind conditions.
Easy setting by tensioning the special line and/or by passing over an extra loop into one of the openings of the boom brake.
Can be used with a mainsail area below 40sqm.
All the operations are made from the cockpit for enhanced safety of the sailors.
The more the line passes over the openings, the more the friction is increased and hence the brake efficiency.
Large range of settings for a perfect adaptation to the wind conditions and mainsail area.
Supplied complete with 16m length of Gyb-Flex friction resistant rope.
