Upgrade your Laser / ILCA cunningham control to a 6:1 purchase system with this complete set up from our Rig Shop. Our PRO 6:1 cunningham uses a set of two Harken 29mm T2 carbo blocks to create a cunningham that is easy to rig and unrig, with integrated Dyneema primary for connecting to your vang and luggage tag loop on lower block for attaching to your mast section. Our experts have fine tuned this system so that the lengths are perfect for dialing in your Laser / ILCA outhaul. Designed for Laser / ILCA sailboats with upgraded deck hardware - deck blocks and deck cleats. If you have a Laser Standard / ILCA 7 MK2 sail, we recommend opting for our 8:1 cunningham kit for more sail control.
Available with Blue, Yellow, Red, or Green 4mm control line. All Dyneema line is gray.
How to Rig:
- Install lower block around mast section, below the tang, by passing the block through the spliced eye
- Set block to port or starboard side, depending on how you prefer to set up your controls
- With your mast and sail up, take the Dyneema primary line (spliced to top 29mm block) and pass through the grommet in the tack of the sail
- Run the loop down to your vang assembly and connect to the pin at the top of the vang - the block/control line should then be hanging from the sail
- Next, take the control line (spliced to the block hanging at the grommet) and run to the block at the base of the mast, passing from back to front
- Run the control line back up to the hanging block and through the sheeve, passing front to back
- Complete the system by running the control line down to the deck, through the deck block, and aft to the deck cleat
- 1x Harken 29mm T2 Blocks (top section of purchase) with Dinghy Control line and Dyneema primary line
- 1x Harken 29mm T2 Block (bottom section of purchase) with Dyneema luggage tag loop for easy install
A Note on Sail Versions:
- The Dyneema Primary Line on our 8:1 system is designed for Laser 4.7 (ILCA 4), Laser Radial (ILCA 6), and Laser Standard MK1 (original cross cut) sails. The line is finished so that you can pin it to the top of your vang assembly and have enough range in the cascade system to achieve desired tension.
- If you use a MK2 Standard / ILCA 7 sail, the Dyneema Primary will be too short. This is because the tack grommet is in a different position (ie, higher) than on all other Laser/ILCA sails. The ideal setup requires an additional 2-3 inches of primary line length. Please contact us at the time of ordering if you need this system built for an MK2 sail.
