At Dutchmar, we focus on innovative yet practical, seaman-like solutions to sail handling. SailCase starts with our Dutchman Flaking System, a modern form of lazy jacks. By weaving the lines through the sail, the Dutchman Flaking System flakes the sail as it is lowered, rather than collecting the sail in a pile. It does not catch the sail as it’s lowered and there is no need to head into the wind. SailCase uses the Dutchman Flaking System to collect the sail since it is essential for the sail to be neatly flaked to fit into the tall, thin cover that sits atop the boom. We also recommend a low friction track system, such as the Dutchman UHMW track. Other tracks can also be used, but consider our track recommendations for a perfect solution.
