As the J/70 Europeans kick off in Copenhagen this weekend it’s time for the third release in our range of dynamic tuning guides: the J/70 training guide.
While live load sensing is not legal for racing in the J/70 class, many of the leading boats in the fleet are getting huge benefits from Cyclops technology in training, learning and refining their fastest rig-load settings with accurate live and logged data at their fingertips.
Two of the top six in this month’s World Championships had benefitted from training with our sensors, including runners-up Midlife Crisis.
Erik Shampain of Midlife Crisis:”𝗧𝗿𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗖𝘆𝗰𝗹𝗼𝗽𝘀 𝘀𝗲𝗻𝘀𝗼𝗿𝘀 𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗽𝗲𝗱 𝘂𝘀. 𝗪𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗺𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗸 𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘃𝗮𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗺𝗮𝗿𝘁𝘁𝘂𝗻𝗲 𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗻𝗯𝘂𝗰𝗸𝗹𝗲 𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘆, 𝘄𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗴𝗼𝘁 𝗮 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗹𝗼𝗼𝗸 𝗮𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝘃𝗮𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗲𝗻𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗮𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁𝘀 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗱𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘆 𝘀𝗮𝗴 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝘁𝗼 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗯𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀𝘀𝘂𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗿𝗶𝗴 𝘁𝘂𝗻𝗲.”
Using the expertise and feedback from the Class leaders using our sensors, along with analytics software we have generated target forestay load values for different wind conditions, to provide you with verified target figures to help you nail down your peak performance.
