Melges 24 Jib Sheet Adjustment

Melges 24 Jib Sheet Adjustment Running the jib sheet back to the cockpit, it is led from a 75mm Carbo Cheek Block to a cam cleat. For the Carbo cheek we recommend using a Ratchamatic, however a Ratchet can be used.

The Ratchamatic is a load-sensing ratchet block that rolls freely in both directions under low loads, and automatically engages the ratchet as loads increase. Shifting between ratchet and light air modes is seamless. Unloaded main and jib sheets run out freely during mark roundings.

Sheave is Hardkote-anodized with eight faces for secure line holding. Ratchet engagement may be adjusted to a higher or lower load according to strength and sailing style. The Ratchamatic ckeek block mounts on either port or starboard.
