In Topic: Top-down furler

I agree with NZW.  We are not doing short course racing.  Always have plenty of time to head down to get a good furl.  Really can't have a lot of pressure on the sail.   And like NZW said if you don't get a good one don't plan on leaving it up for very long.

for reference the A3 I furl is 2530 sq/ft

I have  an A3 on a Karver top down.  60' GB.  Works well.  Have the A2 in  a sock, that works but the furler is easier.  

 

Net net I would recommend it and would not want to put the A3 in a sock.

Saw a crane and barge on its way to Nantucket at around 1pm today about. 15 miles out. Bet it will be out of the water soon.
