Dinghy Control lines are used in sailing to adjust various aspects of the sail and rigging to control the boat's speed, direction, and sail shape.

Using various coloured Robline dinghy control lines will ensure reliability of strength and performance. In dinghy sailing, precise adjustments to your control lines are crucial for optimizing the boat's performance, especially in varying wind and sea conditions.

Uses:

Dinghy control lines are typically used on smaller sailboats, such as dinghies and small racing boats. These lines serve various purposes, allowing sailors to make on-the-fly adjustments to optimize the boat's performance and sail handling. Common uses for control lines include adjusting sail shape, by controlling twist, luff, and foot tension, and managing other sail control systems.

  • Outhaul Line: Used to adjust the tension of the sail's foot (bottom edge) along the boom, affecting the sail's shape and power.
  • Cunningham Line: Controls the tension in the sail's luff (front edge) to adjust the sail's shape and flatten it in strong winds.
  • Vang Line: Controls the tension in the boom's vang (or kicker) system, helping to control sail twist and prevent the boom from rising.
  • Traveler Line: Used to adjust the position of the mainsheet traveler, affecting the angle of the mainsail and the boat's balance.
