I received the email from @SailingDyneema yesterday telling me that we will be provided with Gottifredi Maffioli ropes. I’m pretty excited! At first, I didn’t recognize some of the sheets and halyards they thought would be optimal for the J/24. But after spending some time with their catalogue, they were right on the money. The main ingredient of their ropes is the dyneema core SK-75. This strand yields the maximum in strength-to-weight ratio and is stronger than wire rope constructions – yet it floats. Crazy.
