During any given regatta, one sailor will cross close enough to windward of another so that their boom passes just above the wind indicator of the leeward boat.
What happens next? The mainsheet eventually rips the vane from its bracket, never to be seen again!
There is a better way.
When a threatening mainsheet passes over a C-VANE, it merely slides down the bracket, making a casual spin of the vane without hanging up and away it goes, leaving the wind indicator still attached and fully functional.
The C-Vane was designed by top Laser coach Ryan Minth and has been strongly endorsed by skilled Laser sailors all over the world.
"A brilliant, smart, and cleverly designed wind indicator. The C-vane is my choice to point me in the right direction" - Brendan Casey | Australian Laser & Finn Champion; North American Laser Champion; Olympian
