Schaefer Roller Furling/Reefing allows you to set, furl and reef your genoa from the safety and convenience of the cockpit. You no longer need to scramble forward to hank on your luff or "tame the beast" of a flailing genoa dropped on the foredeck.
Combined with one "wide-range" reefing sail, Schaefer Roller Furling/Reefing Systems can do the work of three or four conventional sails. Sailmakers can modify your existing sail or build a single sail that can perform well in winds from 0 to 35 knots.
The Schaefer reefable furlers are strong, easy to control, smooth and reliable. A proven design with thousands of miles of blue-water cruising, including the grueling Around-The-World-Race.
Schaefer's Torlon Bearings cannot corrode and ride in open, easily accessible races that require only occasional fresh water lubrication. These, proven high compression strength Torlon bearings provide low friction, and need only periodic flushing with fresh water.
