The 2:1 mainsheet system uses a 57 mm Ratchamatic® on a swivel base. In light air, this load-sensing block rolls freely, automatically engaging as loads increase and releasing instantly during mark roundings and jibes.
The vang is constructed with a 3:1 cascade inside of a 5:1 purchase for a powerful 15:1 system. It is used to control the leach of the main while reaching and running, and pivots side-to-side so it's easy to cleat and uncleat.
The lash-on T2™ block, Ratchamatic® cheek, and wedged cam, reduce friction and increase holding power for effective trimming from the wire.
