More spinnaker sailing and in more wind

Deckchute makes you confident that you always can hoist and drop your spinnaker in a safe way.

No matter the wind.

As long as you can steer the boat, you are good.

Simple as that.

Deckchute is a deckmounted hoist and drop system

You mount Deckchute in the safety of harbor, load and connect the spinnaker and you are ready for spinnaker action. After sailing you dismount and store it in a locker.

Deckchute is operated from the pit

You drop the spinnaker pulling a dropline attached to the spinnaker.

The dropline is attached to the spinnakers tack corner, which is the strongest place in the spinnaker, or to a special patch in the sail.

Small boats you pull the dropline by hand, bigger boats you run the dropline on a pit winch. 

The pit winch gives you power to do safe drops.

Any size of kite, any kind of weather.
