The Seldén winches are manually operated and of
self-tailing type with two gears forward. You start
winching clock wise on the fast gear, shift down
to low gear by rotating the winch handle anti
clock wise. So far, exactly as we are all used to.
The ingenious feature with the new Seldén
winches is that you can let the line out by reversing
the winch drum. The purpose made winch
handle has a button which is pushed down with
your thumb to prepare the winch for reverse
drive. The winch handle is rotated clock wise and
the line is eased out. The line remains in the selftailing
jaws all the time which means it’s a one
hand operation to trim the sheet, the halyard or
the spinnaker guy.
Fast trim is a great advantage for the racing
sailor! To ease out the sheet, just push the
button on top of the handle and turn clock wise.
There is no need to even touch the line. Instant
trim makes for higher boat speed.
For the family cruising sailor, one handed
operation means safety – no hands are even
close to the drum when easing out the line. In
rough conditions you can hold on with your free
hand. Single handed sailors can steer and trim at
the same time.
