Dutchman Sail Flaking System – Dutchman Boom Brake – Track Hardware

Watch the Dutchman Boom Brake in action!

At Dutchmar, we focus on innovative yet practical, seaman-like solutions to sail handling. 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. 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.
