The Hanse Designed , Self  Tacking Jib -

Practicality Meets Performance

This remarkably simple and effective concept is implemented on all Hanse models. Safer, easier tacks and jibes means you can sail single-handed more often, short tack in tighter spaces, handle heavier breeze, and simply have a better time. Enjoy showing your kids how to steer through a tack properly, or even give them the reigns.

What makes this system unique is that it is integrated into the design of the rig - it is not a retrofit item. The balance and performance of the boat is optimized straight from the drawing board, and all of the benefits of a self-tacker are provided without compromising on speed or performance.
