Blocks

Blocks in all shapes and sizes from the smallest thimble and low friction blocks to mainsheet ratchet blocks for a variety of classes.

Used on nearly all boats, blocks are an essential piece of sailing equipment which allow ropes to move easily, and make sailing the boat much more comfortable. If you don't have to waste energy struggling to adjust your lines, you will have more energy to spend hiking, thinking about tactics, or completing maneuvres. This is why it is crucial to have well functioning blocks, and to make your boat as friction-free as possible. If you check out the boats of nearly all high level sailors, you'll see that their control systems always work perfectly, because they know that if they're unable to finely tune their boat, they won't be able to sail fast.
