WHAT MEANS flags on the bag?

The International Code of Signals flags were developed back in 1857 are still in use. Body signals for communication with foreign ships, if you can not express himself in their language or, for example, when out of service other means of communication.

As a rule, only one Flag signal can be raised. The flag should be raised up until a response is received from the host ship. So before you hang on the yellow truselya spreaders, think about what it could mean.

We use the boxes as a decoration, but with their help you can also encrypt the hidden message.

WHAT the strings with circles sewn to the bag?

This thread is called the tel-tail attached it to sail in a few places for the convenience of setting sail. It is made from wool, as wool yarn, even if gets wet, it will still work correctly.

That's the old rule of the sail setting: loosen the sail, until it begins to zapolaskivat on the luff, then pick up the sheet a little, so he stopped to rinse. Tel-tail allow you to solve this problem more efficiently, showing a picture of the flow of the sail oncoming airflow.

Genoa must have three sets of tel-tale, located 30 cm away from the luff to a quarter, half and three quarters of the height of the sail.
Nirvana the steering comes at a time when all three sets of telltales directed aft and work in unison.

When you go too close to the wind or the sheet gleaning, the windward tel-tails will go up. Conversely, if the rate is too full or the sheet to move more than necessary, the leeward tel-tail will flutter or fall down

WHAT THE NUMBERS AND LETTERS MEANS ON YOUR BAGS?

All conceptually! The letters and numbers refer us to the sports rules "designation on the sails"

"Each boat ISAF international class should bear the grotto, on spinnakers and headsails:

  • logo, indicating the class of the yacht;
  • letters indicate her nationality. Such letters are sure to carry at all international events, except those on which the yachts are available for all athletes;
  • no more than a four-digit sail number assigned to its national organization, or if it is prescribed by the class rules, the international class association. Restrictions on no more than a four-digit number does not apply to classes, which came in the ISAF or ISAF recognized before April 1, 1997 instead of the numbers, as permitted by the class rules, the relevant organization can assign the owner of the personal number, which can be used on all his boats this class. "

We can assign your bag any number and any letters that may mean anything: from the initials of lovers to wind strength in knots, at which it will bring up a second wind

Materials
WHAT IS THE Dacron?

This title sailing nonwoven material from which we sew our bags.

According to scientific - Polyethylene terephthalate - thermoplastic, the most common representative of the class of polyesters known under different brand names, one of which - Dacron.

Thick synthetic material, which is used for sewing sails. Dacron - one of the varieties of polyester, patented giant US chemical industry, of DuPont Corporation. It is waterproof, does not deteriorate from the sun, it does not lose its shape over time, and almost does not stretch from the wind. The material has become so popular that its name was used for all the polyesters. The fabric is relatively cheap and convenient to sail from her fold and collapse. As a rule of Dacron sew caves and staysail. Dacron fabric are of different quality: more and less dense. For racing boats sails sewn from very dense Dacron, which is almost does not stretch. Dacron replaces the cotton: this fabric is 5 times stronger and more resistant to tearing. Fabric was invented in 1950, and the first sail dacron were sewn in 1958 for dinghies "Finn" and "The Flying Dutchman". For a long time it was the only material allowed Sailing at the Olympics

WHAT IS THE SAILING laminate?

This is the name of the sailing of the material, based on the excess of high-modulus carbon fiber and Kevlar, which we use to produce our bags.

  • Kevlar (Kevlar Eng.) - Para-aramid fabric (polyparaphenylene terephthalamide) fiber manufactured by DuPont.
  • Kevlar has high strength (tensile strength σ0 = 3620 MPa)..
  • It refers to a Kevlar aramid - fibers in this type 5 times stronger than steel.
  • It was invented by DuPont in 1964, and in 1970 started its commercial production.
  • Today, this material is not only used for the manufacture of racing sails. With the help of reinforced tires and body armor made from it
  • Kevlar is used even in the construction of a number of unmanned aerial vehicles.
  • Products made of Kevlar do not like bending.
  • The material is not easy to tolerate contact with water, the sun, but it is eliminated by laminating

Carbon (from the English carbon -. Carbon) - Black-reinforced plastics - polymer composites of woven carbon fiber strands arranged in a matrix of polymeric resin. Black-reinforced plastics are widely used in the manufacture of light, but strong devices, replacing metals in many products from parts of the spacecraft to the rods.

  • Carbon - a carbon fiber.
  • The fiber is made from acrylic, and contains carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen.
  • It is made not only to sail, but also masts, booms, housing and steering wheels.
  • The material keeps its shape very well.
  • It does not get wet and is not blown by the wind.
  • The biggest advantages of carbon fiber - a very high strength and stiffness at low weight.
  • Carbon sail may break in strong flexion, but it is virtually impossible to break.
  • For the first time the sails of carbon fiber used in the "America's Cup".
  • Today, he is considered the most fashionable sailing material.
