Time for some third party indemnity I think.

Today was sprint races. First race was 5kts breeze and 2.5kts current. I hit a lazer, a 420, a 29er, 3 jettys, a sandbank, the bottom mark and got my rudder foil tangled on the top mark. Then my coke drifted away.

I skipped that race and the next and joined the last one. Managed to get it flying in 10kts of breeze which is a new best.

the only question is just how much purchase is inside this boom of doom?

we've designed a wand linkage system incorporating a cam on the wand axle (just a quick screen shot, parts to come) and also built a vang that sits inside the boom with just one dyneema rope coming out of the bottom to the king post. more pictures to come.

aahhh, I've been holding that in for awhile...whether those two items work or not is another matter, time will may all just be ill-conceived tinkering...

well, that was a secret fail
