    Cheers phil..... i dont intend sailing at that kind of angle.....and i thing a spring release mainsheet would avoid that happening even in a squll condition. Good to know she will come back down from that angle.....not bad for a steel centreboarder.

    ha ha... you beat me to it Fenz...
    If you skip to the end of the clip you'll see a Hartley TS18 called Kari planing. Apparently it was white knuckle time in some pretty heavy conditions.

    for capsizing prevention, I would suggest having a look at the safety guide available from the Australian TS16 National Association. There is some very valuable and well researched information in it that is well worth considering.

    skål,

    David.

    Bit of a bump but as I'm getting a TS16 this is of interest to me.
    Regarding capsize and recovery. From what I have read if you can get to the end of the mast and lift it out of the water...your PFD (which you are wearing aren't you?) should supply enough buoyancy for you to be able to do that. Apparently once you get the wind under the sail she will start to right herself. You then work your way along the mast to the boat. A word of warning do not hang onto the side stay with bare hands as she rights.
    Anyway the full article is here:
