ILCA Rule Changes – Aramid Fibre

NEWS! Technora based control lines – class legal from 1 January 2019 and now available for all our systems.

In late 2017, Southeast Sailboats submitted a rule change proposal to ILCA to remove the Laser class restriction on Aramid fibres for the kicker/vang and cunningham. The rule change, voted on during 2018, has just been released by ILCA enabling Southeast Sailboats to sell class legal control line systems using harder wearing Technora® control lines that are made with aramid fibre.
Throughout 2018 we assessed numerous control lines containing Technora® and have selected Marlow Excel Racing GP78 as our premium control line. This hard wearing 4mm control line has a blended Technora®/Polyester cover and a Dyneema® SK78 core. The Technora® in the cover provides greater longevity especially for the highly loaded downhaul and kicker/vang where the cleats cause wear, and excellent grip in the hands. Available from stock in orange/black, lime/black and pink/black as a system option for our world class control line systems, or as rope by the metre. We also offer a re-roping service if you have bought systems from us in the past that you would like to upgrade.
