This has been tired here:

This person actually took off his ruder and did a lot of playing around to come up with a good working system using the galerider drogue.

 

Note the attachment points in the attached doucment are amidships not to the stern as shown below.  This allows the boat to pivot around the keel.  When attached as shown in the drawing below the system did not work at all.

 

By the way, just an f.y.i, here is how you steer with a bucket or drogue.

i'll be bringing my new ride to some of these.  Probably won't be here in time for the BI race but after that we should be all in.  Currently on a ship in the pacific heading for CA and then to the East Coast.

Lots of clubs on WLIS have ideal 18 sailboats that members can use.   You can join a club and sail as much as you like.

Hi guys,

long time lurker, first time poster.

 

captured some footage of the 2014 Heineken Regatta in Sint Maarten... operations involved being on a 32 ft tender w/ a 225 hp engine and a trash bag over my head to protect all electronics from salt spray, going 22 knots, a line tied around my waist to strap me into the seat, flying completely first person view through the monitor.

Cheers!
