In the Moth fleet, weight matters. Over the years, the Moth class has been a great testing ground for innovative new Harken products. It’s where the Harken Fly block was born. Designed to provide strength beyond mass, Fly blocks provide sailors with big power in a low-aero package. Designed specifically for high-tech line, these efficient blocks have an incredible working load for their small size. Fly blocks are common on foiling dinghies and sportboats and for vang cascades and backstay systems on Grand-Prix racers.

Take a peek under the hood of Tom Johnson’s ride, and see how he put the Fly blocks to use at the recent 2019 Moth World Championship in Australia.
