Mainsheet traveller systems play a crucial role in sailing, providing control and efficiency to the mainsail which is essential for fine-tuning the sail's position and shape, especially when sailing upwind or in varying wind conditions. By adjusting the position of the mainsheet traveller car, sailors can influence the angle of the mainsail relative to the boat's centreline. This adjustment allows for optimal sail trim, balancing the forces on the sail and maximising the boat's performance in the current wind conditions.
A mainsheet traveller system consists of a track and a traveller car which moves horizontally. This car supports the mainsheet which controls the angle and tension of the mainsail. Shop all the individual parts or complete systems from Barton below to maximise your sailing.
