The Passagemaker is UK Sailmaker’s cruising headsail that incorporates all the features that experienced cruising sailors look for in a roller furling genoa: padded luff, reef reinforcing patches, and sewn-on UV leech and foot covers for roller furling. It features:
Foam Luff: The crescent-shaped foam luff is designed to help the Passagemaker retain good sail shape while reefed.
Reef Reinforcements: Reinforcing reef patches are installed on the leech and foot to distribute the loads at the points where the new head and tack are located. The reef reinforcements help to eliminate distortion and wear that can occur after repeated reefing.
Furling Covers: As a standard feature on Passagemaker headsails, we install leech and foot covers sewn to the sail. UK Sailmakers uses woven materials like Sunbrella and Weathermax.
