The power of Soft Sailhanks.
Taken further.

The Soft Sailhank is a replacement for the traditional stainless steel hank, which is non-corrosive and lightweight. Sailing yachts use the sailhank as a replacement for a heavy stainless steel connector for the staysail and jib. The Soft Sailhank ensures less compression on the Carban/PBO/Kevlar stay.

Sails can easily be detached from the PBO/Carbon/Kevlar stay by using this system. In the traditional way, for superyachts, the innerforstay and forstay are directly attached to the anti-torsion cable. With the use of the Soft Sailhank the anti-torsion cable of the innerforstay and forstay can stay in place when the sail needs to come off.
