There are many different types of rigs that are commonly used in both dinghy and yacht applications. Each requires careful set up to get the best out of it. At Texwise a full range of rigging terminals, swages and standing rigging are available to complement your mast, whether it is a simple cruising rig or a hi-tech multi-spreader carbon fibre racing rig.
With the wealth of experience at Texwise, in both the cruising
and racing environment, you will be offered the right advice in
getting the best from your boat and tuning it correctly. Rake and pre-bend may be terms most often used in racing circles but any boat will enjoy better performance once the rig set up has been optimized.
In fact, certain rigging mistakes can put excessive pressure on masts and can jeopardize the crews’ safety. Most standing rigging is made to order at the Texwise premises in Strijdom Park and meet the most stringent safety standards. Installation is done by the highly experienced staff of Texwise, resulting in a professionally tuned rig.
