      Learn how to make a loop in your new docklines or how to splice a new shackle onto your halyards yourself this winter with SEAS at our new splicing workshop. We’ll go over proper whipping and seizing procedures, how to make an eye splice in 3-strand rope (dockline/anchor lines), double braid rope (many halyards and sheets) or 12-strand rope (high-tech lifelines, control lines).  This is a useful skill for those who sail any kind of boat - keelboats, Lightnings and other dinghies! Splicing is the forming of a semi-permanent joint between two ropes or two parts of the same rope by partly untwisting and then interweaving their strands. Splices can be used to form a stopper at the end of a line, to form a loop or an eye in a rope, or for joining two ropes together. Splices are preferred to knotted rope, since while a knot typically reduces the strength by 20–40%, a splice is capable of attaining a rope's full strength. However, splicing usually results in a thickening of the line and, if subsequently removed, leaves a distortion of the rope. Most types of splices are used on 3-strand rope, but some can be done on 12-strand or greater single-braided rope, as well as most double braids.
