One of our American customers, Sail Safe Inc has recently developed a unique system for preventing crash jibes, using a range of Barton equipment. Like all of the very best ideas, the Anti-Jibe system is really simple yet highly effective in operation. The system is designed for yachts up to 36 feet and can be used effectively in winds of up to 20 knots.
The system is a must for peace of mind when running downwind when the wind gets frisky as I am sure most of you will know of someone who has been hit by a swinging, uncontrolled boom. In some circumstances the consequences can be extremely serious and involve medical attention, so any means of stabilising the boom downwind has to be considered. The beauty of this Sail Safe system is that it can be set up from the cockpit with no need to go up on deck, whilst locking and disengaging the boom is incredibly quick, easy and safe.
For further details on the new system and to see a video of how it works, check out the web site at www.anti-jibe.com
