Gyb'Easy Boom Brake
Gybe safely with Gyb'Easy, the new
Wichard boom brake
- Why a boom brake?
Gybing remains one of the most challenging operations on a
sailing boat even for experienced sailors and can possibly generate
injuries and material damage. Gyb'Easy is an efficient and safe
solution to reduce such risks.
- Concept: Thanks to the
frictions of the specific line called Gyb'Flex passing over the boom
brake, the boom is allowed to gybe smoothly and without jerks. The
more the line passes over the openings, the more the friction is
increased and hence the brake efficiency.
- Settings of the Gyb'Easy:
The adjustment is made thanks to the tension of the line. 3 different
positions exist for a better adaptation of the mainsail and wind
- Easy installation: It
takes a few minutes to install it on a eye strap of the
boom. Two different fittings can be implemented to fit with all
the deck configurations.
- Can be used on mainsail areas below 40
