More trapeze artistry…

James A Class
This came in from James
On the A the top hole of the dogbone is at deck level, and the bottom hole halfway down the hull.  Always on the bottom hole so you can imagine how low I am.  Quite comfy though.  And can’t see the leeward hull unless I arc my back up.
And this came in from Macca
On the F18 we’re hanging so low that the mainsheet and tiller are wearing out the non-skid on the hull deck.
Notes on the photo
The Red Line is through the line of the beam. The Yellow Line through James’s body and yes, you should see the difference as clear as day… now to find some pictures of not-so-good trapezing! – Who will be the lucky one!?

About prosailing

In Southeast Asia a long time and all the while, sailing cats. But the cat love-affair began when I finished building my first catamaran at age 15... "never again". After building 2 more Formula 16 cats in Malaysia it's really 'never again'. Now we have a large fleet of high-tech speed machines including the Nacra 20 Carbon. Then we decided to spread our wings a little more and imported the Corsair Dash 750. Now we are well on the way to establishing a Coastal One Design Dash Class. As a test bed, we had 4 Dashes take part in the Neptune Regatta and now the plans are rolling out.
