    Rope Products for Club Racers

We stock VPC, Salsa, and T900 rope from New England Ropes. These 3 hybrid options will meet the needs of most of you whose sailing included some club racing along with your cruising ( where lighter weight and reduced stretch may have a greater priority than for the cruiser ). If you need a step up in performance check out these hybrid solutions.

VPC features a strong core blended with Vectran and polyolefin fibers, with a durable polyester cover. The Vectran gives you the benefits of low stretch and light weight. By blending in polyolefin fibers to increase diameter, VPC will have similar strength specs to Sta-setX, but with less stretch and lighter weight it's great for halyards and jib sheets. Not recommended for Mainsheets or other multipart tackle applications. We stock sizes 6mm , 8mm , 10mm, and some colors of 11mm.

VPC by New England Ropes

We like this rope for mainsheets on dinghys or smaller keel boats. Salsa is a soft and strong single braid, made with a blend of Dyneema SK75 plus spun filament polyester. The Dyneema gives you strength and light weight, and the polyester gives you durability and good hand. The single braid is very flexible so it moves easily thru multipart purchases like mainsheets.

T900 is a hybrid double braid construction designed for halyards. The core is make from a blend of 2 fibers - Technora ( an arimid fiber) and Dyneema SK-75. with a polyester cover. Blending the two core fibers reduces the effects of some of the properties exhibited by these fibers when used alone - the Technora reduces the creep of dyneema, and the Dyneema reduces the weight of Technora, resulting in a rope that approaches the performance of Vectran but at a reduced cost, especially for halyards. Not all colors or sizes are in our stock, call us for details.
