Gybing is still one of the most challenging manuovres in sailing whether you are an experienced yachtsman or not.

The action of the boom can be quite aggressive and is potentially dangerous. 

Wichard Gybe Easy is a boom brake that has been specifically designed to reduce the acceleration of the boom during a gybe, thus improving manoeuvre safety.

The gybe easy is a simple solution that is easy to install and adjust to the eye strap on the boom

There are 3 different settings to suit varying conditions and sails up to 40 square metres.

The friction of the specially designed Gybe Flex (Gyb'Flex) Line passing through the brake facilitates a safe, smooth, crash free gybe.

More passes through the brake = more resistance to a potential crash

The Gybe easy is supplied with a specific gybe easy line.
