Racing question for anyone
I grew up sailing Hobie 16 and 18's around as fast as I could, I loved being out on the wire, hanging over the ocean and keeping the boat perfectly balanced. Tacking was a little more complicated but fun.
Fast forward to current day, I have no drive to race my current boat but: is there a sailing rule against a boat having a trapeze system and the crew wearing harnesses to get their weight further out on the windward side?
I'd look it up in the rule book but it confuses the cruiser in me.
I'm sure I could do with just a few Racers telling me how dumb I am for asking this before I get the clue, but fire away.
