We are going to participate the [color:"red"] Round of Texel [/color] <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />- The Netherlands- June 23, 2007 <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> (biggest Catrace in the World [http://www.roundtexel.com/] with almost 500 subscriptions already!!) In rough conditions (waves) the main sheet tends to slip through the apertures in the trampoline <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" /> - especially the rear one. Very inconvenient when both hanging in the trapeze! <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> Tried to avoid this by inserting kind of mesh which actually does the trick more or less. Does not seem to be a long lasting solution however. Anybody a (better) solution?

other question: we have to have 2 paddles somewhere on board - which we will almost for sure never use. We would like to attach them under the trampoline to keep as much free space as possible. Any suggestions?

Happy sailing from The Netherlands!
