If you're seriously racing the Club 420, this is the jib halyard package you'll want. This system completely replaces the wire in the jib halyard system with super-strong and lightweight Vectran.

We offer you two options for this halyard -- the first comes complete with with a Harken Micro Single with Becket and Wichard Halyard Shackle. Both of these items are snugly spliced on by our Rigging Department.

If you'd prefer to reuse the block and shackle from your current halyard, we also have a "stripped" version of our Vectran Jib Halyard available. This version allows you to simply and easily luggage tag the block and shackle on, making the switch easy and painless.

Modeled after the standard wire jib halyard that comes with the Club 420, we use high quality 7x19 wire and nicropress a Harken Micro Single with Becket to the "working" end.

For attachment to the sail, we upgrade the standard shackle to a Wichard Halyard Shackle -- this is a higher quality shackle that is stronger, operates smoother (easier to open and close) and it locks down more securely.
