Polilite Rope for Dinghies
Polilite Rope is a special mainsheet rope which has become very popular for dinghy racing. The rope has great cleating ability as well as a non twist core which helps to prevent knotting and kinking while in use.
Polilite Rope is a revolutionary non-twist mainsheet which continues to be as popular as ever. With the load bearing outer cover gripping the lightweight inner core the risk of being confronted by a tangled mainsheet on a crucial bear away is greatly reduced.
Since being used to win the Laser Gold Medal at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, Polilite has proved time and again that it is the rope for dinghy mainsheets.
Sky sell Polilite in 6mm and 7mm diameters which allows better running through the blocks than a standard 8mm line.
- Hard wearing, load bearing outer cover minimises the risk of twists
- Polypropylene construction reduces weight and water absorption
- 7mm/6mm diameter ensures the rope runs easily through blocks
Perfect for Lasers, Toppers, Picos, Wanderers, Wayfarers, Fevas, and most dinghy and small sailboats.
It is suggested to wash the Polilite in the washing machine on a cold wash with a little powder. This washes out oils used to allow the rope to be made extra tight with more body, so that it kinks less when it is used. Always treat it with respect and coil it up (climbing rope style) so kinks or twists never form.
Please check the outer core for ware as this is the load bearer. We recommend that you change the rope after 1 year of weekend use. Ensure that all the coils and kinks are taken out of the rope before you dead end it in the boat. The rope will not absorb or create kinks from then on.
