UV strips on the sails attached to the furling installation are important for the preservation of your sails. Of course, there are also covers for furling sails, but we do not recommend these. In practice, it appears that the installation of furling jib covers is not done consistently. This means that the sail is exposed to UV radiation an average of 3 times longer. As a result, there is a bigger chance of tears and repairs. Add UV strips and your precious sail will last longer.
