Slack in your mainsail sheet can hang up on your head or gear, especially in gusting conditions when maintaining control is critical.
Our low-cost clips not only provide a low-friction path for the mainsail sheet, but they twist easily around the boom, adjusting to the position of the blocks as you sail. They also make great prizes for regatta winners and presents for your favorite sailors! ORDER YOURS NOW AT THE AEROSOUTH STORE.
Clips snap on and off quickly. Works for sails attached to the boom with rings or lines. Best is a set of three clips between blocks. ID is 1.5" (Sunfish & similar) or 2.0" (Laser & similar) - others on request. Works on many different sailboats with 1.5" or 2.0" diameter booms.
AeroSouth's Mainsheet Hanger Clips are allowed in Class Racing, according to John Butine, National Measurer of the United States Sunfish Class Association. John confirmed this to Kent Misegades, Owner & President of AeroSouth, following the 2021 Sunfish North American Championship on Lake Norman, North Carolina. "Success in competition is rarely due to one large advantage, but instead is nearly always the result of many small ones working in unison." Kent Misegades
Popular and humorous Long Island Sunfish sailor Lee Montes describes some simple means to improve the world's most popular sailboat. At 2:50 in the video he describes the advantages of the AeroSouth Mainsheet Hanger Clips. Thank, Lee!
ISCA West Region Representative Jeff Bryant gave our sheet guide clips a good workout at the 2020 Arizona Yacht Club Birthday Regatta. Jeff commented on their performance: "No main sheet hang ups all weekend. I did not notice the clips, they never got it the way, they don't spin much (which I like, but do slip easy if you want), they look cool, really happy with the whole clip." Thanks, Jeff!
