Genoa

Today we call a genoa a downwind headsail

A genoa is an overlapping sail, i.e. a foresail whose foot is longer than the J-measure, the distance between the mast and the forestay.

The size of the genoa is often determined by the possibilities offered by a yacht

Where is the hole point, what size of sail area can my yacht carry, do I sail regattas and where is my area

All criteria for the right choice of sails to be carried on board.

In addition, there are the different sailcloths and sail cuts of a genoa. We are happy to advise you and will find the right headsail for you.

Spinnaker

The spinnaker is usually the largest sail on board a yacht and is set on space or downwind courses to increase the sail area

The spinnaker has a bulbous cut, has two equal-length leeches and is made of nylon or polyester, depending on the size and use.

It is light in the cloth so as not to collapse even in light winds.

The weight of the cloth increases if it is to be used in a lot of wind or if it is a heavy yacht

Today, spinnakers can also be safely handled and sailed by small crews thanks to a special recovery hose

Also, the cuts have changed so that a spinnaker is easier to trim

A sail that should not be missing on any yacht.

One Design

One Design or class sails are sails that are designed and built strictly according to the rules of the class associations.

Sailcloth and also cuts are mostly predefined and leave the sailmaker hardly any free design space.

But this is exactly where good One Design sails excel, when they just bring that little edge

This is due to clean work, cutting, gluing, sewing and finishing of a sail.

We at Faber und Münker in Kiel are proud to have been able to build and develop the sails for our multiple world champion and Olympic champion Heiko Kröger in the 2.4mR class for many years.

In other classes like the J-80, the Nordic Folkboat, the 12mR, 505, Tornado or back then in the Sprinta Sport, with which we won the European Cup and the Kieler Woche 5 times, prove that One Design sails "Made in Kiel" are fast and successful.

Company portrait

About Faber & Münker
Ulrich Münker & Christian Tinnemeyer
More than 30 years ago, 33-year-old Bernd Faber and 31-year-old Uli Münker dared to take the leap into self-employment and broke away from the main sailmakers of the time
After only half a year, the team consisted of 6 employees and they had to work overtime
A situation that could be described as nice and positive, as they had hoped to get through the winter to some extent.

At the beginning the two sailmaker masters also profited from their old employer, the company Reckmann & Schuldt.
Some of their customers changed right away, but soon they were able to build up their own customer base in Kiel
The Kielers wanted to enter the standard classes and so dragon sailor Thomas Müller came just in time, who had not yet found a sailmaker willing to build his sails for him according to his own ideas.
Right at the first big appearance on the water, the Pfingstbusch in Kiel, the Faber + Münker boat won with Müller and an impressive speed
In addition, there was the sword draught bird and the folk boat.
According to the motto, "cobbler stick to your last", they concentrated on the classes in which they had already gained a lot of experience.

Both had a lot to show already at a young age
So Bernd Faber sailed since 1973 on the Admirals Cuppers "Windliese", "Duva", "Magica" and "Jan Pott", while Uli Münker was active on the racing yachts "Magica" "Magica Elizia", "Vineta" and "Espada".
In addition, Uli sailed on Tommi Müller's kite at the start of Kiel Week 1984

The great sailing experience quickly brought Faber + Münker a good name in the scene and they very quickly equipped several interesting projects in the regatta scene with sails from Kiel

Even though regatta sailing was very important, touring sails made up 2/3 of the production. But the experience and important knowledge gained in the regatta area was and is still passed on to the important customers from the touring area.

The tasks in the sailmaking department were well distributed, so Uli took care of the sail construction and Bernd more of the production.

Besides the Commodores Cup and the first Kieler Woche victory in the Dragon in 1984, winning the German Championship in beach sailing, the Whitbread Around the World in 1986 on the Shadow of Switzerland (a SWAN 57), the great international successes in the Sprinta Sport class and the 12er SPHINX were among the projects most remembered.

Today, a good 30 years after the opening of the sailmaker's Faber + Münker, a lot has changed. Due to the sudden death of Faber, Uli had to look at how to continue, how he would like to go into the future with the sailmaker's shop.

So the logical consequence was that his former model apprentice Christian Tinnemeyer - known in the scene only as Tinne - rose to the management after a few journeyman years. Today, Tinne is, among other things, responsible for cutting on the laser plotter and is, of course, also an experienced and thoroughbred sailor. In the meantime, a new hall was built and occupied in 2011.

Bigger, brighter and equipped with improved workstations for the tough profession of sailmaking. In 2014, the sailmaker's shop in Kiel stands for competence, friendliness and continuity.
