ILCA Mainsheet Blocks and Vang Units.

Ronstan’s ILCA® mainsheet blocks provide the perfect balance of strength, performance, and reliability Ronstan is known for. They feature a 2-stage bearing system which minimises friction and gives sailors ultimate control while trimming.

Ronstan’s ILCA® lower vang unit is the new benchmark in design and performance. Thoroughly tested on the water by leading ILCA® sailors, the vang unit features optimised geometry to minimise line chafe and friction which provides a purchase advantage, and easy cleating and releasing to stay in full control when playing the vang from any angle while inboard or hiking. The RF34108HL is a purpose designed ILCA® top vang block.

 

 

Ronstan Orbit Winches

For years, advances in sailboat hardware have been limited to marginal gains and fractional improvements in efficiency and strength. With the new range of Orbit Winches™, Ronstan introduces the sailing world to a truly new innovation with the patented QuickTrim™ self-tailer. With QuickTrim™, sailors can ease lines without removing the winch handle or the line from the self-tailing jaws.
