When you receive your mainsail from Precision Sails we supply you with a Velcro strap which is intended to be put on the clew around the boom. This Velcro strap has a couple of functions. The first is for when you’re sailing in heavy winds or stormy weather you can wrap it through your clew and around your boom for extra stability and strength. Another is when you are not using a clew slug, you can simply use the Velcro strap and make quick adjustments to the tension of the sail. In this video Darryl, owner of Precision Sails, reviews the various uses for your Velcro strap on the clew.
A boom preventer is a rigging system which prevents the boom’s ability to move past the cockpit when any accidental jibing or tacking action occurs. It works by restricting the range that your boom can swing. This is important to help prevent damage to your vessel, or harm to your crew. You don’t want your boom swinging back and forth from an unexpected gust of wind taking off your crew mates heads and knocking them overboard!
