LIROS recommend using individual sail area as a benchmark for determining the optimum line diameter for your running rigging application.

The Jimmy Green Rigging Team suggest that there are additional criteria that you may wish to factor in:

  • Consider increasing the diameter to make handling more comfortable
  • Check the capacity of all associated fittings e.g. sheaves, blocks and winches
  • Assess how hard you intend to work the rigging
  • Prepare for the rigours of extended cruising

Each individual line should be capable of comfortably taking the anticipated strain, but it also needs to run smoothly and freely through your rigging system to avoid disproportionate effort, needless delay and excessive wear and tear.
