Racing Winch 500

Racing Winch 500

  • Self-tailing & top cleat
  • 2- & 3-speed versions
  • Aluminum & carbon fiber

Developed for the harshest conditions and most competitive races on earth, Harken carbon fiber racing winches are the choice of professionals and top tier racers alike.

Winches feature carbon skirts and tops, aluminum drums, and strong composite jaws with one-piece sculpted line guide and peeler. PEEK roller bearings are low-maintenance, reliable, and efficient. They ride in large-diameter cages, allowing more bearings to carry the load. Stainless steel drive gears are strong and durable. If class rules dictate, winches are also available in all-aluminum with stainless steel gears.

Complete customization

Options include self-tailing arms, top cleats, free-spinning or ratcheting base sheave additions, and left-handed rotation.

Power ratios

Carbon winches come with up to three speeds and can be driven by handle, pedestal.

Self-tailing

The self-tailing mechanism on the winch means that one crew member can quickly and easily trim or raise sails.

Top cleat

Use the top cleat to quickly secure lines.
