When light weight is critical, Dinghy Light is the answer for light air jib, main and spinnaker sheet applications. This double braid line is made of polypropylene, so it won’t absorb water and extra weight. The outer cover is 40-plait braid for high abrasion resistance and comfortable handling. The 8-plait core makes the rope round, compact and low stretch.
