Sailing Trapeze Harnesses
Designed for hiking off a trapeze rigged boat, trapeze harnesses are designed to support your back and shoulders when trapezing to prevent fatigue. Trapezing boats allow you to stand on the edge or gunnels, extend your body out and away from the boat to keep flat all while connected to a wire attached midway up the mast. Harnesses for trapezing boats allow you to sit back into them while providing lower and upper back support. Available with a wide range of adjustments and hook arrangements, trapeze harnesses are a necessary part for racing many dinghy boat. Please note that ISAF rule 40.2 now requires trapeze harnesses to have a quick release device to protect sailors for getting trapped after a capsize or collision.
