The STORM-BAG is an innovative new storm sail featuring a "saddlebag" quick-launch design that reduces time spent on the foredeck. It only takes a few seconds to snap it on, then raise it from the safety of your cockpit.
The ingenious design by French Sailmaker Michel Sauget, allows you to launch your storm jib simply by pulling the sheet. The sail unflakes from its own heavy-duty bag. You carry it forward like a briefcase and attach it from a sitting or kneeling position, an important safety feature.Time spend on the foredeck is reduced dramatically.
The STORM-BAG has a double-skin construction. The two layers of sailcloth are slightly lighter than a traditional storm jib of the same size -- but remember that everything is double. The sailcloth is doubled, the head and tack corners are doubled, as well as the number of clews.This makes it very strong.
As an important bonus, the design creates a very efficient forward edge so your boat can point up to 15 degrees higher than with a heavily rolled genoa. The STORM-BAG sail is cut like a traditional storm jib to provide a low center of effort, greatly increasing the stability of your boat. Only a hanked on storm jib is better.
Here's what one customer had to say:
"On a recent trip on a Beneteau 41, we were crossing the Bay of Biscay and thence the Channel. We lost both the roller furling genoa and the mainsail in very rough conditions. The STORM-BAG was deployed in a very quick manner which carried us safely to a refuge in Dartmouth where repairs could be carried out. The three of us on board are of the considered opinion that this product saved us from a major catastrophe. Please thank the designer."
The STORM-BAG package includes the sail, the heavy-duty coated bag (attached to the sail), the deck pennant and shackle, two heavy-duty sheets and shackle. Easy-to-follow numbered instructions are shown on the bag in English and French.
