I have recently fitted a Bartels spar. I contacted Brigitte Zettler-Kufner: bk@bartels.eu and just asked for a ‘wayfarer genoa reefing system’ and she supplied a quote with a list of part numbers.

They do have a cataloge on-line, and I extracted a few pictures to provide info for making a new genoa. There are several parts in the Bartells quote, but you can find the sketch that Bartells provided, togther with some notes & pictures of the asspciated parts at:

By the way, I’m very pleased with the spar, but yes, it did take a stiff drink.
