Description of ATN Spinnaker Sleeve Size A up to 55 Feet sold by the foot
Features of the ATN Spinnaker Sleeve * Single hand any spinnaker, reacher, gennaker, MPS, screecher or mizzenstaysail up to 15,000 sq. ft. (Mega sloop Frers/Huisman 156' "Hyperion") * High-tech, ultra-light Kevlar Hoop matches shape of the spinnaker and will not warp under load * Single control line led through separate sleeve eliminates fouling * Contrasting visual reference stripe * Wire pennant with swivel at head of spinnaker prevents sleeve from affecting sail shape by allowing the sleeve to accumulate on the pennant * Mesh construction allows sail to breathe, so that sails dry quicker, even while stored "Anybody can get a sail up-- It takes a sailor to get it down" That statement is particularly true regarding the spinnaker. The problem is not to hoist the sail but to get it back on the boat. That's when the spinnaker sleeve makes the average sailboat owner a great sailor. Without any help, he makes that very powerful and expensive sail disappear with a minimum of fuss and trauma. And the sail is ready to be hoisted again immediately, no more packing! While it would seem that a spinnaker sleeve is a simple sailing tool, and that any one with a sewing machine could design and fabricate one, when dealing with large sails, the problems increase rapidly in complexity and cost. It is very plausible to get hurt or to inflict great injury to others, and to one's wallet, if the system used is inadequate. But there is no need to rub it in, especially at sea: it has to work and be reliable. Order the ATN Spinnaker Sleeve by the one foot increments to match the leech length of your spinnaker.
