Title (EN) IMPROVEMENTS IN AND RELATING TO SAIL REEFING APPARATUS
(FR) AMELIORATIONS RELATIVES A LA PRISE DE RIS SUR UNE VOILE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A yacht sail (1) is characterised by a plurality of slides (2) provided at spaced-apart intervals along a luff edge thereof. Each slide (2) extends from the surface of the sail on both sides of the sail to stand substantially proud of the sail surface (1). A track (3) for the slides (2) is articulately mounted to an associated mast (4), the articulation enabling the track to swivel thereabout in substantial conformity with movements of a sail (1) mounted therein. Boom (15) mounted sail furling apparatus (14) furls the sail (1) or allows the sail (1) to be raised with the slides (2) moving in track (3).
(FR)La voile d'un bateau (1) se caractérise par une série de curseurs (2) disposés le long de l'une de ses ralingues. Lesdits curseurs (2) s'étendent à partir de la surface de la voile et de chacun de ses côtés de manière à en (1) dépasser sensiblement. Un rail (3) pour les curseurs est monté articulé sur le mât associé (4), l'articulation permettant au rail de pivoter autour d'elle en suivant quasiment les mouvements de la voile (1) y étant engagée. Le dispositif de ferlage (14) monté sur la bôme (15) permet de ferler la voile (1) ou de la hisser cependant que les curseurs (2) se déplacent dans le rail (3).
