Essential rigging pieces to fit out a sailing boat, the blocks exist in a wide range of sizes. More or less sophisticated, with a variable number of sheaves, they are adapted to the different functions associated with the ropes on the ship. Single or turning blocks, are made of three major elements: 2 cheeks (or flanks) which enclose the block, one or several sheaves.
