Four KAP kites compared - Bft 3

edited January 2013 in Kites
Another episode comparing line-pull, this time in 7 to 8 kn or Bft 3. Also added a tail to the Pilot


  • Move the Pilot's tow point just slightly aft and you shouldn't need the tail.

    Looks like lovely weather, Andrew -- get the rig out!
  • Thanks Brooks, I'll try moving the tow point. Never considered that with the Pilot.
    I did pop up a rig when these yachts approached up the channel. Unfortunately they all dropped spinnakers when the race finished.Returning yachts by kite
  • Thanks Andrew for taking the time to make those measurements and share it with us. Very interesting results.
