Laser Mainsheets

Which mainsheet to use?  Sometimes it can be a bit like what rig should I use today – is it a full rig day or a radial day?  Do I want a thin mainsheet or a thicker one?
Mainsheet length is another variable/decision to make.  If it is very short – say 12m – the positives are that if you accidentially drop the mainsheet in 20 knots on a run it doesn’t go too far out and you have time to recover before you death roll.  Also you have less in the cockpit. On the downside you can’t go too far by the lee.  The ideal length is probably between 13 to 14m depending on how you tie the mainsheet off in the cockpit. We offer mainsheets in two lengths – 13.5m and 14m. For other lengths look at our ropes by the metre page.
