asymmetric spinnaker / for cruising sailboats
ATN RETRIEVAL SOCK
for cruising sailboats
These are tubular socks with a fibreglass front lip. Flown from above the spinnaker they can be pulled down to collapse and douse the sail making the dropping of the spinnaker easier and less risky especially short handed or family cruising. When relaunching the spinnaker the Snuffer remains over the spinnaker and is then hoisted up by a separate line allowing the spinnaker to fly.
