does anyone know which is the load bearing of the gennaker halyard of a 21 square metres gennaker with 20 knots of wind?

We stock the nice (tapered) spi halyards for the Tiger / Wild Cat - get one of those...they are worth every penny!!!!

Agreed. The factory tapered halyards are NICE.

Do you know how to splice?

I've been pulling the core out of my halyards and using just the cover where you grab it, both the core and cover where it cleats, and just the core running up the mast to the head of the spinnaker.

It saves a little bit of money.
