Lighter and Better?
Panthera, an Australian Flying Tiger 10M pictured left, sails into the future with Dyneema Standing rigging.
Modern Dyneemas have enough strength and stretch resistance to replace stainless wire for the rigging of a high performance sport boat. Any reduction in heel and pitch resulting from reducing weight aloft is very rewarding and there is no sailing boat afloat that will not be improved. Including yours!
In 20 years time there will be almost no yachts left with heavy wire rigging, and this future is available now, with info from our new advertiser SpliceRight. So check them out and see how this technology can help you.
