Use our Genoa Sleeve over your furled genoa to protect it without the need of a built-in cover. Use a spare genoa or spinnaker halyard to hoist the sleeve and shield the sail from harmful UV light while at the mooring. After hoisting the sleeve and zipping it closed, a unique line system hugs the cover for added protection. As you can see in the photo, the lines snug around the cover and sail to prevent them from flogging in a breeze.
• By eliminating the need for a built-in sail cover, sail shape is improved for better performance.
• With less weight on the leech and foot, your genoa will fill much easier for more fun in light air.
• The lines keep the cover snug around the sail even in a strong breeze.
• Because the cover is snug around the sail, the cover and sail cannot flog themselves to destruction in a breeze. (OK, OK, if there is a serious storm predicted you should always remove your headsail to both protect the sail and reduce windage aloft
during the storm).
• Easy to deploy, just hoist it as you hold the zipper fob to zip it in place. Next, gently tension the lines and secure them as provided near the bottom of the sleeve. In no time your sail is secure and you're on your way home!
