Fits inside boom to provide support and strength around the fittings for the turbo vang and mainsheet.

With the introduction of the Turbo Vang to the ILCA class, additional strain was placed on the boom given the extra pulling power of the new vang, and the 'super vang' technique used by many sailors in heavy winds. The Boom Sleeve was introduced to provide extra support around the vang fitting, and prevent bending and snapping of the boom with high vang loads. 

Using large amounts of vang is a crucial technique in the modern ILCA sailors arsenal, and if you're at all concerned about the integrity of your boom, it might be worth considering replacing the boom sleeve.
