What size kite sheets & blocks?

Recommended Posts

Hi - I've just bought a Sonata & need to replace the kite sheets & get a new pair of ratchet blocks for them. The old sheets are 6mm but a crew member has complained that they're tough to hold in a breeze. Would 8mm be too heavy? Also, re blocks. I asked Harken what size & they said they'd previously specced 57mm for a Sonata. But then they said 75mm would be a sensible choice for improved holding. Happy to get the larger ones if necessary but it's an extra £30 so if it's not necessary I'll get the smaller size. Any suggestions/help very much appreciated!

Goacher Sails sell ready made tapered spinnaker sheets which will address the concerns you have.....thick enough to hold / light enough not to affect the sail trim. They would also advise on suitable block size.

PS....well done buying a Snotty!
