These are halyards for a Chesapeake area J120
that has done the Annapolis to Bermuda, Annapolis to Newport, and Marblehead to Halifax races. Both spinnaker halyards have Dyneema Chafe
Sleeves. These are 100% Dyneema/48 plait covers that make an excellent
anti-chafe application for big boats going the distance offshore. HYR is proud to report after inshore racing and offshore racing, the halyards are still going strong with no noticeable wear.

small performance keelboat that can be home-built and thus affordable.
This boat is racing in the northern Chesapeake waters.
