Sailing hardware manufacturer Ronstan has expanded its continuous-line headsail furler range with a new Series 60 furler that can accommodate working loads up 1,430lb for use on sport boats and staysails on cruising boats up to 40 feet. Ronstan has also unveiled a “top down” furling attachment for its Series 100 and Series 130 furlers. Top-down furling is a new approach to headsail management, whereby the sail first rolls itself up near the head swivel, as opposed to along the entire luff. The result is an alternative to conventional snuffers when handling asymmetric spinnakers.
