The Albatros racing rope was conceived for ultra-precise setting manoeuvres: thanks to its stabilised core (coated and heat-stretched) which has a very low elongation.Easy to splice braid, particularly recommended for flat sail sheets and halyards, (genoa, jib, mainsail).
Its Polyester cover brings a good resistance to abrasion and UVs.
Excellent stiffness/price ratio, for intensive use.* The load specified is the breaking load. Consider half of the working load.
We recommend this rope for your halyards. Some points to guide you:
To estimate the breaking load of your halyard (in kg):- Genoa surface x 80
– Main sail surface x 100
– Spinnaker surface x 30
– Genoa = Mast length x 3
– Spinnaker = Mast length x 3
– Main = Mast length x 2.5
