Because most halyards and sheets are operated by hand, comfort is of great importance during sail races. That is why we have only selected our best ropes for dinghies and daysailers. We advise recreational sailors to choose halyards and sheets with a core of polyester. Often there are extra grip fibres added to the cover such as Cordura for better grip of genoa sheets and spinnaker sheets. And also for spinnaker halyards this is useful, because they often go through your hands during the sailing race. It depends on how fanatically you sail and of course how much money you want to spend on your yacht.
For a genoa sheet it is important that the rope has as little stretch as possible. With a mainsheet, this is less critical, because it is likely rigged with a purchase system on your boat. Of course we make an eye-splice to your halyards or sheets if you like. And if you want a stainless steel shackle, order it together with the halyard. You can also send your old shackles and have them spliced to your new ropes. More sustainable! Do not forget to make a whipping at the end of the halyards, sheets and moorings. We can also do that for you. That way they will not wear so quickly through the blocks. You can, of course, call us for advice +3120-419 6412.
