Harken

Worldwide Shipping

At 21.5 feet, the Mini 6.5 Meter is a supercharged small keelboat that is over canvassed, sports a mast almost twice its length, and has been clocked in excess of 20 knots. The active circuit culminates every two years in the Mini Transat, a solo 4,000-mile battle from France to Brazil. With 70-plus boats on the starting line, competitors range from professional to amateur. All compete for the personal challenge and to test mental limits. The Mini is a development class designed to a box rule. Proto (one off) boats feature carbon sandwich construction and canting/sliding keels and daggerboards. Production boats or 'Series' are simpler, featuring aluminum spars and fixed keels.

Running Backstay/Checkstay
Two-part system: a runner/checkstay combination controls mast bend and headstay tension at two different points on the mast. The runner features 57 mm Black Magic® AirBlocks®, while the checkstay uses a floating system of lightweight Micro blocks.

Running Backstay/Checkstay
Recirculating ball bearings allow genoa lead cars to easily adjust loaded sheets from the safety of the cockpit. Low-profile, lightweight Small Boat track and traveler car features 29 mm Carbo T2™ control blocks to adjust tackle. A 40 mm Carbo T2 block on the car provides a fair lead.

6:1/24:1 Mainsheet System
Features a gross-trim/fine-tune system that sheets from the center of the cockpit. Carbo blocks reduce weight by 30% and are 60% stronger than Harken Classic blocks. A 57 mm Carbo T2™ block attaches with high-strength Spectra® line. Fore and aft/awthwartship configurations minimize twisting and spread the load. The soft attachment always provides a fair lead.
