The trapeze belt: your best ally in dinghies
When your dinghy lifts off the water, it becomes essential to balance your boat, and for that, there is nothing like a trapeze belt. This will allow you to accentuate the counterweight effect by leaning over the water. This characteristic dinghy sailing position prevents the boat from capsizing despite the speed. You will find different models of trapeze belts, and there are several criteria to consider when choosing the model that will be most suitable for your practice.
How to choose a trapeze belt
Also known as a trapeze harness, the trapeze belt must absolutely be resistant and comfortable. The main difference you will find between the entry level and the high end is the overall comfort when you move horizontally over the water. The comfort is mainly in the waist, buttocks and back area. A reinforced Kevlar seat, for example, provides better support but also better resistance to abrasion and wear over time. You will also benefit from a trapeze belt with shoulder reinforcements. Foam straps will allow you to stay in a lying position longer without feeling pain in your back.
