Sometimes it is the little things

Just a quick post here as there has been less sailing than wanted this season. Was off the water for about 9 weeks, the reason will be explained in a forthcoming post. But, I made a small upgrade to the traveller system by adding cages to the cam cleats. This will help the main trimmer a lot as they allow almost 90 degrees of lock/unlock angle. Will be very useful when single handing as well. 

Seemingly small change that will have a large impact. The fasteners did take me 3 attempts to get the length correct. Otherwise it was quick and easy. M4x50mm by the way and nylock nuts.

  1. Also useful for braking during high-load jibes. I had the plastic version and the rope cut it in half within a few months.
