Four KAP kites compared - Bft 3
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.
Thanks Andrew for taking the time to make those measurements and share it with us. Very interesting results.
