Applications

Control Lines

Control lines are used to make adjustments to different parts of the sail and the rig. Kingfisher Yachts ropes have many different rope options for control lines on board.

Halyards

A Halyard is used to hoist a sail, ropes used for halyards are normally very low stretch to keep the sail raised and taut.

Sheets

Sheets are a line used to control the movable clews of a sail. We have many options for sheets on board for dinghy sailors through to Grand Prix race boats.
