A proven favorite offering a powerful vang purchase, powerful spring return that eliminates the need for a topping lift and keeps the leach of the main open and working during lighter air racing. Flush spring adjustment design (no adjustment pins for lines to catch on) makes for a streamlined unit. All lines and blocks shown are included. Mounting conversion brackets for either the boom or mast are available separately. The J/80 Quick Vang has a 8:1 purchase - 4:1 fiddle with cam cleat, and 2:1 through the vang assembly. The pictured vang is the B12 model with a 12:1 - not legal for the J/80

J/80 8:1 Traditional Vang

J/80 Traditional Vang

The J/80 traditional vang is a 8:1 – 4:1 fiddle blocks and a 2:1 cascade. The 2:1 is a Harken H304 Single High Load Wire Block attached to the boom bail with a RF629 twist shackle.

The 4:1 fiddle block system is available in two different configurations. The first is a H053 Little Fiddle and H060 Little Fiddle with Ratchet, Cam and Becket. The second is lighter weight option with a H2621 Fiddle and H2676 Carbo Fiddle with Cam and Becket.

H053/H060 System:
The Harken Little Fiddle Blocks build three and four-part purchases. These blocks feature fast trim and release under high or low loads, free-rolling Delrin ball bearings, and UV-stabilized sheaves (for non-ratchets) and sideplates, with high-strength stainless steel side straps. The ratchets grip loaded sheets, yet allow line to be eased with complete control. They feature Hardkote-andodized, Teflon-impregnated eight-sided sheaves machined from solid aluminum for strength and corrosion resistance.

H2621/H2676 System:
The Carbo Fiddle range features high-load ball bearings with fitted races for low-friction operation. The fiddle features the Cam-Lock System allowing the post to swivel freely or lock at 90 degree intervals. Cam arms can adjust to five different positions. Composite plates lock arms to the block with 35 pins.

Adding a 2’ pennant between the mast attachment and the H060 fiddle makes for easier cleating/nucleating of the vang line – gets the cleat away from the cabin top.
