FRIEND is a stick that can be lengthened very easily and with precision.  

Moreover, it is a brand new accessory in that it allows you to adjust and block the direction of the tiller to the angle you require. 

Once you have blocked the stick grip, all you have to do is rotate the stick on itself to change the angle of the tiller 

No button pushing required: when you let go the stick it is automatically blocked into the new position.

It is easy to deactivate the function of FRIEND and go back to sailing in the traditional way. 

All you have to do is lift the stick grip out of the hook. Once the stick grip has been feed from the hook, for safety purposes, automatically aligns itself with the surface it is attached to. 

Friend  has the same function as the manual knob in blocking the steering wheel. It is simple to mount too.

Here are some of its advantages:

It allows you to leave the tiller while sailing so that you can adjust the position of the sails, take the reefs and sail alone. In general our stick enables you to do all kinds of manoeuvres single-handed or it lets you simply relax as you sail with both your hands free

While mooring you do not have to lash the tiller.

Friend, in the traditional use, has a telescopic movement by simply rotating on its own grip: in any case it isn't necessary to push any button. The lenght of the stick is blocked mechanically: it's safe and reliable

STRENGTH when you want and SPEED when you want.The combination of the force applied to the handle with the speedused to move it, produces the power applied to the winch.Why waste energy, when the job requires a limited effort?SPEEDFRIEND telescopic arm is exactly what you need.Because of arm length reduction (from 254 mm. to 177 mm.) you havegreater manageability and therefore a 30 % increase in speed of use.SPEEDFRIEND telescopic arm directs your energy where it's mostneeded -maximum speed, minimum effort- for winding in the sail rope-maximum strength, reduced speed- when regulating the sail rope.SPEEDFRIEND really allows you to save time when handling thespinnaker or the gennaker.SPEEDFRIEND telescopic arm rotates on ball bearings for effortlessmovement and ease of handling.
