New sail innovation: Code Permanent Hoist
The UV-protected Code Permanent hoist is indeed the new kid in town for cruising sailors who are looking for maximum power, but at the same time are looking for extremely easy handling while at sea. The sail is part of the “Code” family, but especially designed to stay up and ready for use all the time! And isn´t that what cruising sailors are asking for?
The sail can be hoisted in the harbor and can then be left up all day long, overnight and even for weeks while on your way.
The sail has a high clew for better downwind performance and visibility at sea. The sail is used on an AT cable and the furling system is bottom/up. The bottom/up system means that the sail is furled from the bottom and up and therefore reacts immediately when you pull the furler line. Due to the somewhat stiffer material the sail will stay compact and tight when furled in and not in use!
Material: CodeTech X 170
The sail cloth is designed especially for the Code Permanent Hoist, and is a Polyester Ripstop weave reinforced by adding a polyester scrim and a single sided film. The single sided film keeps the laminate “open” and “breathable”. The UV-protection used for this sail is our Solartex adhesive UV guard, which is added on the film side of the sail.
The Code Permanent Hoist has a very wide and forgiving sail range from approx. 55-120° TWA. Wind angles are subject to the actual boat type, weight and stability.
The Code Permanent Hoist is available for deliveries from the beginning of 2022.
