Sailing dinghy cordage is used for halyards, sheets, downhauls, trapezes and other functions. While it is generally made of the same materials, its diameter is less than that of the corresponding lines on a larger sailboat.Technologies
Common materials include polyester, Dyneema®, Vectran®, bungee-type elastic rope and, rarely, PBO. Polyester is a mid-range fiber with a very good quality/price ratio. Its low stretch coefficient, high breaking load, UV resistance and moderate price make it suitable for any on-board application.
Dyneema® is a more modern material. More costly than polyester, it is also much stronger and stretches less. This allows for thinner, lighter lines. Some versions have a polyester sheath. Vectran® is suitable for sailing dinghies because of its good characteristics, even at small diameters. Elastic rope is very useful for trapeze rigging, spinnaker pole outhaul and other functions.
Budget is the main factor of choice since the best line materials are also the most expensive. Consider how comfortable the line is to the touch. Jib and mainsail sheets must sometimes be held under tension for long periods.
