Recognizes On-Water Miles Sailed Using In-Boom Furling System
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – Designed to simplify mainsail handling, Leisure Furl in-Boom furling systems have made it easier and safer for thousands of sailors to get out on the water and enjoy the sailing lifestyle. To recognize the most active of these Leisure Furl sailors, Forespar is establishing a new Leisure Furl Voyager group to honor their on-water achievements and accumulated mileage. A private kick-off party is planned for Saturday, October 11th, during the Annapolis Sailboat Show.
Recognition as a Leisure Furl Voyager is only achieved by logging sailing miles while using a Leisure Furl system. Several sailors, including several circumnavigators, have already been identified as Leisure Furl Voyagers and they plan to attend the Annapolis party to accept their mileage awards. There will be four different levels of mileage awards including 1000, 5000, 10,000 and 25,000 miles sailed with Leisure Furl.
Currently scheduled to attend the Voyagers kick-off party are:
• Bob & Kristin Beltrano – Swan 53 "Nai'a" – 80,000 miles
• Jon Knowles – J-46 "Abracadabra" – 25,000 miles plus
• Michael Relyea – Hylas 54 – 28,000 miles plus
• Greg & Vicki Shea – Valiant 50 "Erin Brie" – 50,000 miles including a circumnavigation
All these highly experienced sailors plan to share their sea stories during the party to help reinforce the real-world benefits of in-boom furling. They all swear by their Leisure Furl systems and will attest to safety and ease of sail handling they have all enjoyed over their long miles at sea.
All current or prospective Leisure Furl owners are encouraged to attend the kick-off party and anyone who has logged more than 1000 sailing miles using Leisure Furl, is eligible for Voyager status. Please contact Bill Mosher for membership and party details.
