Check out our nautical rope guide
for equipping your Ilca:
For the mainsheet, we recommend Marlow® rope with technora cover and dynema core, specially designed to prevent the rope’s core from twisting upon itself. The 6mm mainsheet is the most common, but it’s also available in 7mm for strong winds. Ideally, you should have both mainsheets so you can use the 6mm one in light wind and the 7mm one in strong wind.
As for the traveller or boom vang, our favorite is made of dyneema, which is extremely resistant and durable. Although some prefer vectran, keep in mind that it wears out easily when in contact with the boom end fittings.
For the kicker or vang, we recommend dyneema without a cover for the primary part and dyneema with a polyester cover for the longer part. As for the thickness, we suggest 3mm for the primary part and 4mm for the longer part.
Regarding the cunningham, we also recommend dyneema without a cover for the primary part and dyneema with a polyester cover for the longer part. The recommended lengths are 1.2 meters for part 1 and 4 meters for part 2.
Finally, for the outhaul or cunningham, we recommend dyneema without a cover for the primary part and dyneema with a polyester cover for the longer part. The recommended lengths are 1.45 meters for part 1 and 4.5 meters for part 2.
But, pay attention! These are only recommendations and it’s always better to measure the rope that needs to be replaced before buying the replacement. If you need to change several ropes, a very useful option is our custom-made rigging kits. If you have any doubts about which rope is the best for your Ilca, don’t hesitate to contact us. Our experts will be happy to help you find the best solution for your nautical needs.
