F U R L E R STG 3T wire furlers : The 3T "in & out" furling systems are quite similars in use to conventional furlers. However, with this type of furler, the headsail is fitted with snapshackle to the forestay wire and then can be quickly changed. Light and easy to operate, the STG 3T suits particularly monotype racing boats.

Facnor adapted the racing structural furler developed for ocean Open 60’ to 24 to 30 ft sailing boats. These furlers are in/out systems for Solent or small Genoa. They give the possibility of hoisting quickly a sail fitted with hanks as on any conventional forestay. This system is especially suitable for racing yachts.

U

nlike the headsail furling and reefing system, but like the Gennaker furler, the structural wire furler does not allow reefing of the sail. It is an in/out system. The sail set on structural wire furler can be fitted with hanks or zip luff. The furling principle is simple: the continuous line drum transfers the rotation to the tack of the sail that furls round the forestay. After a few turns, the rotation is quickly transferred to the top of the sail. With the halyard swivel the sail can be quickly hoisted and lowered the sail as requested.

T

he structural wire furler offers the same advantages as the continuous line drum: a constant furling power, a maximum luff thanks to the low profile drum that keeps the jib tack low. Extra feature: the saving in weight compared to a classic drum is around 10kg less than a conventional furling system. Ideal for racing boats!

MADE FROM A SINGLE ALUMINIUM BLOCK The continuous line drum is made from a single aluminium block that is CNC machined in order to offer a high resistance

F U R L E R Facnor supplies the First Class 7500, produced by Bénéteau. This boat has been designed by FinotFauroux architects in partnership with the French Sailing Federation. The choice of the Class 7500 illustrates the perfect suitability between the STG 3T and the racing monotype boats.

* To give a comparison, it is 1mm smaller than a Cd-Rom The structural furler holds the mast unlike the Gennaker furler. Therefore, it supports the forestay loads. The principle is the same as the custom structural furlers installed on ocean racing mono- and multi hulls. However, the custom products are fitted with anti-twist fibre cable. The STG 3T only requires a standard monotoron wire forestay.

PRODUCT REPORT Aude Trabach,

5 or 6 mm Ø STAINLESS STEEL WIRE

Manager of the “SAILING TEAM” training base

The stainless steel wire is not delivered with the kit. We recommend reliable, strong and high quality products of Sparcraft Rigging, joint company of the Losange Group.

“T

his version of Facnor furler is efficient, strong and light. It allows an easy mast unstepping without any piece falling overboard. Facnor team is very reactive. The improvement of the product in a very short time is impressing. I thank Facnor for the professional and quality custumer service.”
