Flying Scot 2:1 Jib Pigtails with Harken Ti-Lite Blocks


If you race a Flying Scot, you probably already know that the jib car track is too far outboard - and class rules do not allow you to move it.

To work around this issue, sailors pull on the lazy sheet, bringing the jib clew inboard to close the jib slot. The general consensus is that the proper angle of cross-sheeting is achieved if you pull from a point about 6 inches back from the clew.

This pigtail is specifically designed as a minimum-weight solution, permitting optimal cross-sheeting along with 2:1 purchase on the jib sheet. It features Harken 29mm Carbo Ti-Lite blocks spliced directly to 7/64" Dyneema line. The pigtail is "Y" shaped, with a fixed eye for attaching to the jib clew and a split at the correct location leading to the blocks. Just eye-hitch the pigtail to the jib and then reeve the jib sheets through the blocks.

You won't find a cleaner, lighter, or better made solution anywhere. Every connection point features locked brummel splices and the ends are all buried and tapered. I take pride in making the best jib bridle available.

2 genuine Harken Carbo Ti-Lite blocks are included. They accept up to 5/16" diameter line.
