Gybe safely with Gyb'Easy, the boom brake from Wichard.
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 (included) 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 3 different settings allow the boom brake to be adjusted to suit the mainsail area and wind conditions. The more Gyb'Flex passed through the brake, the more friction is applied and the more effective the brake. When sailing, the setting is made by tensioning the line.
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 sqm
