Title (EN) DEVICE FOR SIMPLIFYING THE SETTING AND TAKING IN OF SAILS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE SIMPLIFICATION POUR ETABLIR ET REPLIER DES VOILES
Abstract:
(EN) A device for simplifying the setting and taking in of spinnakers comprises a helix (7) which can be longitudinally expanded to a lenght corresponding to the length of the sail (1). One end of the helix is fastened in the running rigging of the boat adjacent to the head of the sail. Means (27, 28) are provided for pulling the helix down over the sail such that the helix is successively stretched out to embrace the sail and means (29, 30) are also provided for recontracting the helix from the expanded condition so that the sail is successively realeased.
(FR) Un dispositif de simplification pour etablir et replier les spinnakers comprend une spirale (7) qui peut s"allonger longitudinalement jusqu"a atteindre une longueur correspondant a la longueur de la voile (1). Une extremite de la spirale est attachee aux manoeuvres courantes du bateau adjacentes a la tetiere de la voile. Des moyens (27, 28) sont prevus pour tirer la spirale vers le bas autour de la voile de sorte que la spirale s"allonge progressivement pour ramasser la voile et des moyens (29, 30) sont aussi prevus pour ramener la spirale de la position allongee a une position repliee permettant ainsi a la voile de se deployer.
