4 - Main sheet

Important rope characteristics for a main sheet are: weight, flexibility and grip. In contrary with a genoa sheet low elongation is less important. The main sheet runs through blocks with a gear ratio, for example a 1:4 purchase. This damps the effect of rope tension and elongation on sail trim. A double braided rope with a core of polyester or core of SK38 Dyneema® fibres is a good choice for a mainsheet.
