Keep your nice new Kemp Sail out of the harmful rays of the sun with our packaway system. It also makes reefing and dropping the mean an ease. You could also get it colour matched to your cockpit enclosure for extra points.
It is many years since Kemp Sails first introduced the Packaway mainsail stacking system. Proof of its success can be seen in any marina in the country, with many manufacturers emulating the principle.
The system works in conjunction with lazyjacks to enable the mainsail to be lowered quickly, safely and efficiently. In partnership with slab-reefing, the Packaway provides a simple and effective reefing system, keeping the spare bunt of sail out of the cockpit and the helmsman’s line of sight. When not in use, the integral tie-down straps can be used to reduce windage. When it’s time to stow the main, all you need to do is pull the zipper to enclose the sail and protect it from the elements, ready to hoist at a moment’s notice. The Packaway works well with conventional mainsails but really comes into its own when combined with a fully battened main or Kemp Power Main. We will be happy to advise on the merits of converting your sail. (Please refer to the pros and cons of a fully battened mainsail).
The Packaway is supplied complete with Boot cover, Lazyjacks and mast turning blocks (see diagram). Easy to fit Collects the sail Produced in u/v stabilized acrylic Keeps mainsail above sight line Custom made to suit your boat Protects mainsail from the elements Tie-down straps reduce windage when not in use.
