Very impressive.  So would this be legal in other classes including single trapeze boats - 5-oh, Fireball etc?

I'd guess the precedent is set, more or less. Watch as classes scramble to add a rule requiring feet to be in contact with the deck/gunwhale/topsides/wing/whatever whilst on the wire!

\very impressive on flat water but I hate to think what it would be like in waves. Also how long does it take to get into that position and how long does it take to tack?

It cannot be good for the helm's spine! And can you imagine how far the crew is going to fly when they capsize?

nice!  But in truth a little foolhardy, no chance of a crash tack and I'd love to hear a Chiropractic assessment too.

I wouldn't, chiros are all quacks with very odd ideas of how the human body works (Subluxations my @r53) with interventions that have neen known to cause strokes and death. I'd rather hear from an actual doctor specialising in skeleto-muscular problems...
 
having ranted, when flat, there's not that much force goes through the feet whilst trapezing- the harness and wire takes most of the weight.* The angle of the wire here will mean there's a bit more force, but certainly nowhere near the bodyweight of the helm.
