The Dixon Clew is the light, easy to use and safe way to secure all types of headsails and gennakers.
The simple D shaped ring is used to attach eyespliced headsail sheets with a Dyneema loop to various headsails and gennakers, with standard press or taped rings, using a cow hitch.
The Dixon Clew is easily changed from sail to sail, while the loop stays attached to the sheets.
It presents the distinct advantage of no bulky, heavy and difficult to untie knots that can cause problems if they get caught on the rigging or mast while tacking.
Designed by Gray Dixon, a sailor and designer with over 40 years experience, and manufactured in New Zealand, it is machined from marine grade aluminium plate and has been hard anodised.
The loop is made of Dyneema.
