The Easiest Way To Roll And Drop Your Spinnaker.

The KSF Furler includes all the advantages of the KF line, but incorporates an independent swivel on the top of the drum that enables the sail to furl from the top to the bottom. It is now possible to furl the Asym from the cockpit for more safety and convenience when cruising. This is also a weapon for racers that can hold their asym closer to the mark and in worst weather conditions.

The anti torsion line is independent from the luff. The tack of the asymmetrical is attached to an independent swivel on the top of the furling drum while the head of the spinnaker is lashed to a lashing thimble. When furling, the spinnaker starts to furl from the head and continues down to bottom, hence the term “Top Down Furler”. The system is already approved by Maxi Yachts and does not need to have the spinnaker retrofitted.

Includes: Furling drum and top swivel.

Get Ready For This Season With A New Sailing Short

If you spend a lot of time scooting across the deck of your boat or sitting for extended periods of time it may be helpful to look at the dynamics of padded shorts before making your purchase this season. The overall construction, drying time, durability, and padding use are important factors to take notice of when making a decision about which pair to buy.

Velocitek ProStart: Edge the competition.

For racers looking to get an edge over the competition, check out the Velocitek ProStart Display. Although it does not come with a remote to operate it, this display exceeds others on the market.

The ProStart, a successor to Velocitek’s SC-1 model, has been scaled back to provide sailors with only the essential performance data required. Such data includes time to start, distance to line, speed over ground, course over ground, and a graphic wind shift indicator.

This display uses GPS satellite signals to monitor speed and performance that data can be collected through user-friendly software. The ProStart does not come with any manuals, only a Quick Start guide and Internet links for a full owner’s manual as well as other support and software information. With its ease of use, large, intuitive, and waterproof design, there is no need for any manuals.

The Velocitek Prostart is perfect for small-boat sailors that need tools to track their speed and improve on their overall skills. The portability and ease-of-use with this display make it a great tool to give an edge to sailors over their competition.

Project AWARE. A clean ocean for all of us.

We sail and dive, but most important we all need to care. Mauri Pro Sailing supports many movements; lately we have been following Project Aware efforts to protect sharks and to remove debri from our oceans.

About (from their site): Project AWARE Foundation is a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean planet – one dive at a time.

Over the past two decades of underwater conservation Project AWARE have learned that divers are true leaders in ocean protection. With new programs and more online resources than ever before, Project AWARE supports an unprecedented global movement of divers acting in their own communities to protect oceans and implement lasting change.

They are focusing in on two major ocean issues –Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris, or trash in our ocean. Truly, there are many conservation issues converging on our ocean planet at once, but we’re concentrating on these serious problems where scuba divers are uniquely positioned to directly and positively affect real, long-term change in these two areas.

Oceans are an important part of what we are and what we do, lets keep it clean and healthy!
