Barton Marine will be launching their new 6:1 Topper Downhaul Assembly at the RYA Dinghy Show this weekend on stand F64.

Upgrading to a 6:1 purchase system means less effort is required for trimming the sail in a breeze and provides for those wanting to push to the limits for incremental power gains when it matters.

It allows younger, lighter sailors to control the power in strong winds and helps maintain the most efficient sail shape regardless of conditions.

The class legal set up comprises of a Size 0 Triple Swivel Block, with 90º cleat plate, a Kevlar cleat and pillar fairlead with a 5mm carbine hook fitted. This is joined with three meters of 4mm eight plait polylock line to a Size 0 Triple Fixed Eye Block with another 5mm carbine hook attached.

The system is made to Barton's exacting standards in their factory in Whitstable, UK and has been extensively tested both on land and out on the water to ensure maximum performance when it counts on the racecourse.

Available to order now using part number 98080 with an RRP of £114.16 inc VAT.

Come and experience the full dinghy equipment range this weekend and discuss your requirements with the Barton experts on stand F64 at the RYA Dinghy Show, or visit the Barton website at
