Can anybody explain how quick-release trapeze harnesses work please.

Also, is it possible to convert a harness to quick-release?

Thanks Pete

Obvious question - can we get them cheaper than the extortionate 60?

With the ISO Class Pro-Am Series, the prizes are money off vouchers with RWO. So yes you can get them cheaper!

Barry has had the rwo quick release for about three years now and although he has never had to use it in anger it still works and has not seased up even after lots of salt water sailing. I can't belive that people sail without them, why take the risk.

Personally I decided to adopt ISAF rule 40.2 strictly since January 1st 2008.
No crew will be admitted on board unless he wear a quick-release trapeze harness.

If it were upon me, i would add this to the ISO class rules !
Pete, do you think it will work buying a stock of harness to obtain a discount from the manufacturer ? how many would be required ?

The trouble is, there are several versions of the QRH depending upon your type of harness. Spreader bar (single bar or framed bar), lace up plate, stitched into harness. Which would we load up with?

Easier to run the Pro-Am vouchers and let people decide if they want to use the vouchers to help them potentially save their own life one day, or if no voucher - pay the 60, or just maybe they could opt for staying under water 2 seconds longer than they can hold their breath for.

I'm not sure we as a class are in a position to dictate what people should use, but we are definitely in a position to advise against any dangers that sailing and ISO sailing can and do hold.

Pete
