Hi,

there is much on forums about mast floats, but does anyone have experience of using any and how much they slowed or prevented inversion?
Thanks,

Eleanor

Hi Eleanor,

we are using them a bit with our Mirror fleet at Restronguet SC, see www.facebook.com/restronguetsailingcluby...-JYbEaAz6A&__tn__=-R

As you can see, we use the Optiparts one, www.ukmirrorsailing.com/index.php?option...le&id=597&Itemid=339 and I would say they are very effective at stoping inversions. However, there is a limit. If both sailors remain on the 'cockpit' side of the hull and hang on the top gunwale etc. for long enough, even with a float, it will invert (but is still easier to right from that position than without a float)

Thanks - that is really helpful - all I want is a slowing down if it's a dip to windward to enable me to release kicker etc before swimming round to right the boat. thanks again, Eleanor
