Genoa cover melges 24 tensioning
melges 24 tensioning Genoa sleeve
Standard genoa sleeves made with the traditional sock method are difficult to lash because lines can’t be tensioned near the top of the sleeve where tension is needed most. This results in a sleeve that flogs in strong winds. A flogging sleeve will quickly fall apart and creates incessant flapping noises that will make you very unpopular at the marina.
Our Genoa there’s no need to add extra lashings because of ingenious lacing system that almost completely eliminates sleeve flogging in strong winds, thus prolonging the life of both your genoa sleeve and sail from flogging and chafing. Made with top-of-the-line materials to create a well-made sleeve that will last longer than a traditional genoa sleeve. We’ve chosen Sunmaster plus for our fabric, which is a solution-dyed polyester that won’t fade in the sun. Sewn with lifetime goretex thread. We’ve taken elements from other tensioning systems and to create what we think is the best and easiest to use.
our sock goes on just like the sailrite version but with a bigger tensioning buckle among other upgrades
