Please note that if you are using the Standard MkII sail we recommend our more powerful 8:1 downhaul systems.

System Option – Primary Termination

As an alternative to the primary line being fixed using the lower strop, a caribiner or quick pin can be used, attached to the top of the kicker assembly.

This makes rigging/de-rigging easy, particularly if you are using a braided chain handle. However the main reason for introducing this option is so that you can easily re-configure your downhaul on the water to run both the primary and secondary down one side of the boom if it is really windy. If you add the ‘top of kicker’ system option the primary line of the downhaul that you order will be shortened for attachment using a caribiner or quick pin as shown in the photos below. If you haven’t got a caribiner or quick pin we list them below.

If ordered in conjunction with a 6:1 downhaul the downhaul primary will be shortened accordingly. Note that this option does not include the caribiner.
