Sailboat Lines by Boat Type

 

This selection guide will allow you to find some recommended line options for most running rigging based on the type of boat you sail. We base our recommendations off of a balance between price and performance for each of the different applications. In the Cruising section you will find an upgraded Club Racing option that you can consider to boost performance. In the Racing section the same Club Racing recommendation is considered a budget option.

Select your boat type from the list below:
