Allen Keyball Harness

2018-06-14 15:31:36

The Dangers of trapezing have never been more apparent than in the last few years and as boats get more powerful and hardware becomes stronger shouldn’t there be a natural progression to try something new when it comes to trapezing?

For many years the Allen development team was keen to design a trapeze system that improves the safety of the sport and reduces the risk of entrapment by the traditional hook-on trapeze harness. Designer Julian Bethwaite had also been thinking along the same lines and had produced a prototype of the Keyball trapeze system.  In conjunction with Bethwaite Design, Allen has developed the concept into a sleek and innovative product, eliminating the hook altogether and creating a safe intuitive solution that really works. The Keyball design was originally entered into the prestigious METS trade show DAME awards in 2014, receiving a special mention in the “Life Saving and Safety Equipment” category.

Megan Pascoe - National Champ!

2018-06-01 13:58:49

I turned up on the bank holiday Friday, after a long journey to Poole Yacht Club, for the UK 2.4 Nationals as part of the International Paints Poole Keelboat Regatta. After a bit of rigging and the odd beer, it was time for bed as we had an early 9 am start on Saturday.

The big breeze that we expected wasn’t quite as strong as forecast but we still left the shore in 15 knots. With the best the British and a few German’s could offer in terms of 2.4 sailors it was going to be a tough event and it certainly turned into really good racing. As Saturday continued the breeze was dropping steadily. I started the regatta with some really good races; 3 bullets but not by much. As we started the racing early it then meant it was a nice afternoon on the balcony of Poole Yacht Club.

Allen Academy Sailor Nick Evans At The Optimist Selections

2018-05-09 09:04:40

I competed at the Optimist Selections Trials on the 4 to 7 May. It’s an invitational event held each year at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy. The top 80 Optimist sailors in the UK compete to represent Team GB at the Optimist Worlds, Europeans, the Flanders Regatta and, this year, the North American Championships. The catch is that just a limited number of places are available. The weather was glorious but the wind not so. It was very light for all four days, never exceeding the 10-knot mark and sometimes zero, gusting zero!

Megan Pascoe - Write up from Ruhr City Cup

2018-03-26 09:58:42

You get a suggestion from time to time about an event to attend. Essen was one of them. Few turn out to be as good as people suggest but Essen didn’t disappoint.  The warmth from the hosts WSB 1919 on the Baldeneysee made up for packing the boats up in freezing temperatures in Frensham and turning up on Thursday to a wet murky Germany. 4 British boats, 2 Dutch and 1 Belgium joined a tough German fleet. A relaxed start time on Thursday allowed me to change my mainsheet block to the new Allen 45mm AutoRatchet and after tuning run with one of the Dutch, I re-rigged it to make the ratchet work the right way.

James Peters and Fynn Sterrit 2017 Review

2018-01-04 12:08:19

2017 has been a breakthrough year for Fynn and I. The Princess Sofia Regatta in April of this year was our first major regatta win.  The style of sailing was typical of that in Palma; the thermal winds there demand consistent starts, clever positioning for clear air and the capitalisation of any small gains on the fleet. It was a tight finish but we nonetheless came away with the trophy.

June brought with it the World Cup Final in Santander. Once again we used our strength on the startline combined with an ability to manage the risk associated with changeable conditions to come out on top by the end of the week.
