Topper Racing Halyard Strop
Strop that doubles over the mast end fitting to keep sail up
The topper is allowed to use a strop at the top of the mast to hold the sail up following a rule change and is no longer required to have a full length halyard.
This helps to keep the sail at the top of the mast as there is less rope to stretch.
The strop comprises of a high spec dyneema loop with a bobble on the end.
