Well JimC while in no way wishing to get personal but don't I see you sitting upright on a plank? Tongue in cheek perhaps.

I'm inclined to agree somewhat with GRF on this one.

Firstly to be clear I do have full respect for professionals in biomechanics.

I do find it a subject of wry amusement though, all the collective wisdom directed at solving a problem of our own making.  Com'on people on the one hand we worry about sailing being elitist and inaccessible and on the other talk of professional sailors with good technique vs weekenders.

Make boats with a righting moment matched to their sail area, simples  Wink. More use of sit on winglets, people have evolved to carry loads in the vertical posture, hanging out horizontally unsupported is just plain wrong. Yeh yeh I hear the cries of man up or ship out and no pain no gain, how about the other one, if it's hurting you're doing it wrong?

Want even more? Get a trapeze boat, single handers with a kind hull form are quite accessible to non athletes and two person single trapeze give power without pain.

Or bung lead on the bottom, or sail a West Wight Scow.

Personally, I don't think trapping is the answer to the problem, it needs a whole new level of commitment.

Which isn't to say it isn't fun, and worth doing in its own right.
