Hi All,
I don't have any severne sails but considering buying one. only concern is that severne has pulleys different to most other brands. so the question is will server sails easy to rig on chinoook extensions? has anyone tried?

thanks

It will be fine, in fact will work better then most sails as the Severne pulley is rotated 90deg so is easier to downhaul it right down to pulley/pulley contact

I have rigged blades on chinook ext. works ok, have since bought a severne wave grenade ext. They are better to rig on the severne ext.

Got blades and S1 sails 2013,14&2015's and they all rig fine with Chinook alu extensions.

Not chinook but I'm using np carbon extensions with Severne masts and sails... No problem.

Considering almost every extension has the same orientation of pulleys.............. how is rigging a Blade in a Severne extension better than a Chinook extension...?FFS they have the pulleys in then same plane.

I had a Code red with 4 pulleys and only two on the NP extension, which meant that I couldn't use all of the pulleys on the sail. I bought a new extension with three pulleys to make rigging easier.

Or you can just skip one of the middle pulleys when you are threading the downhaul.

Thanks for all the feedback. I will try rigging on Chinook and see how things go. At least extensions are more compatible than masts

The severne and the the old arrows extensions I have have the cleat set up for port tack rigging, as opposed to starboard like most others. less fiddly, and worth remembering if a clumsy setup you annoys you!

I have been using severne sails for years with skinny chinook extensions.
Works fine, only difference that Ben S pointed out to me a few years ago was the luff ext number on the sail is pretty close for severne ext but not correct for chinook as the collar to roller spacing is different(space from collar to roller from bottom hole is bigger on chinook if that makes sense ) so the sail is closer to the board on the severne ext.
That was a few years ago but still the same I think.
