New England VPC for halyards. 8MM for jib and spinn halyards, 10MM for main. 7/16" sta-set for jib sheets. I paid around $400 (spliced my own shackles on) total for 4 halyards and 2 sheets last year for my 29footer. WM rigging had them on sale. Shop around and online, Sailnet has good prices and sales from time to time.
VPC seems to be a good compromise for the cruiser of club racer. The vectran/MFP core doesn't creep and should be fine for a 29 footer.
