In this category you can order Sheets for Sailing. Sheets or Sailing Sheets, sheet lines are boat lines that are used as a sheet when sailing. Below we have put together some information to give you an idea of which rope you can use as a sheet line.

With the help of sheets, the sailor primarily determines the angle of attack of the sails to the wind. Changes to the sail position are very often necessary. Accordingly, the sheets must be operated regularly by tightening (tightening the line) or fiddling (letting go of the line).

There are almost always several sheets on board, and the sheets are named after the sail that is steered with their help. The mainsheet determines the orientation of the mainsail. Foresails, for example a jib, have two sheets: one on each side of the ship. Here the exact name of the jib sheets would be jib port sheet and jib starboard sheet.

In practice, significant forces act on sheets such as the main sheet and jib sheet. For this reason, they are usually operated with winches or pulleys (possibly with several pulleys). This already provides crucial information about what properties sheet metal should have:

Sail sheets must be selected appropriately for the load. Modern synthetic fiber ropes with lines made of polyester or Dyneema offer both inexpensive and very high-performance solutions. Polyester impresses above all with its high abrasion resistance and Dyneema with its high yarn strength and low elasticity. In this regard, core-sheath constructions with high-strength Dyneema core and abrasion-resistant polyester jacket are currently unsurpassed.

If you want to avoid having to readjust the sail sheets frequently, choose lines with low stretch. Performance-oriented regatta sailors choose sheets made from Dyneema fibers, which only stretch minimally. A cheaper but slightly more elastic alternative are 1:1 braided. Here the ropes consist of a high-strength braided polyester core, which in turn is braided with a polyester sheath.

Sail sheets are guided and moved via winches, blocks, tackles and through guides, clamps or line stoppers. At these points, the high tensile forces cause strong friction, which can lead to undesirable chafing. Sheet lines should therefore be as resistant as possible to abrasion and should not be prone to chafing. Polyester is the optimal material in this regard.

Sail sheets must be operated very often, these lines should be particularly easy to grip and easy to handle both by hand and on the winch. It is important to ensure that the line is comfortable to grip, especially if the sheet is often moved out of your hand.
