Ronstan Sailboat Orbit Winches are the perfect choice for sailors looking for exceptional power and control when operating their sailboat. These winches offer advanced features and technology that make them a top choice for both racing and cruising. The lightweight machined aluminum drum, distinctive Power Ribs™, and QuickTrim™ patented self-tailing feature are just some of the highlights that make these winches stand out from the competition. Let's take a closer look at the features of the Ronstan Sailboat Orbit Winches.

Power Ribs™ for an Exceptional Grip

The Ronstan Sailboat Orbit Winches come with distinctive Power Ribs™ that ensure a controlled grip at all times, whether tensioning or easing. These Power Ribs™ offer a multitude of benefits that include requiring fewer wraps around the drum, reducing the load held in the self-tailer, and encouraging the line to slide easily upward on the drum to avoid riding turns. The non-abrasive drum surface extends the service life of running rigging and allows for smooth and easy adjustments.

QuickTrim™ Self-Tailing Feature for Smooth Adjustment

The innovative QuickTrim™ self-tailer allows sailors to easily and safely ease line tension to make minor sail trim adjustments without having to remove the winch handle or take the line out of the self-tailer. Racing sailors can react and respond instantly to minor changes in wind direction or steering, providing an unmatched advantage when frequent sail trim adjustments are required. It's also a nice convenience for cruising sailors. This feature makes sail trim adjustment intuitive and quickly becomes second nature.

Proven Andersen Winch Gearing Configuration

The Ronstan Sailboat Winches come with a proven Andersen winch gearing configuration that has been time-tested and proven to be reliable. This gearing configuration offers exceptional power and precision while requiring less effort to operate. This feature provides sailors with confidence and control when operating their sailboat.

Easy Configuration and Servicing with No Tools Required

The Ronstan Sailboat Orbit Winches are designed to be easily configured and serviced without the need for any tools. The full disassembly and reassembly can conveniently be performed without the need for any tools. To remove the drum, pull back the spring-loaded release latch, and a slight anticlockwise rotation will allow the self-tailing arm to be lifted from the winch. From there, the drum can be removed from the winch center stem. When completing reassembly in reverse order, an audible click confirms positive engagement between the self-tailing arm and bayonet notches on the center stem. These notches allow the self-tailing arm to be locked in one of eight positions at rotational increments of 45 degrees.

Sprung Self-Tailing Jaws to Accept 6-12mm Line

The Ronstan Sailboat Orbit Winches come with sprung self-tailing jaws to accept 6-12mm lines. This feature provides sailors with a flexible and versatile option for operating their sailboat. This feature is particularly helpful when a sailor needs to vary the size of the line being used to adjust the sail trim.
