Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Cruising Mainsheet Rachet and Cleat Question Re: Re: Mainsheet Rachet and Cleat Question


I prefer the traditional rear main sheet, as a centre main looks like it would clutter the centre of the boat, important when sailing with the whole family. I have a cam cleat mounted on forward edge on each side of the aft locker to secure the main sheet when necessary, which not only takes the strain but frees one hand. It’s very easy to release, and seems to work very well.
