Harken, Inc. is a leading manufacturer and marketer of quality sailboat hardware and accessories. Founded in 1967 by Peter and Olaf Harken, the brothers were pioneers in the development of composite bearing technology, an innovation that markedly reduced friction in sail controls.

Based on this single revolutionary idea 50 years ago, the Harkens have grown their business from a small backyard company into a global operation. Harken gear dominates in America’s Cup, Olympic, and Grand Prix racing. Block, traveler, winch, furling and hydraulic systems are aboard everything from the smallest dinghies to the largest megayachts and cruisers.

As the company moves forward, sailors lead us to breakthroughs. Products are invented and reinvented, and innovation will always inspire.

VSPARS is a revolutionary, deck-mounted sail and rig visualization system that tracks and calculates the sail shape and position in real time. Specially designed cameras mounted on the boat are connected to proprietary software, which runs on a conventional laptop. The integrated system outputs full details about each sail and the rig deflection to an on-deck display, allowing trimmers to replicate previous targets. VSPARS sail and rig vision also interface with boat data so that sail shapes can be saved to a database linked to boat speed, TWS, heel angle and other user-defined variables. The VSPARS sail and rig vision system is installed on board Quantum Racing, contributing data valuable not only for racing, but also the sail testing and verification process integral to Quantum's iQ Technology™ process.
