Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0870674A2] A nautical balance system (10) for installation on small sailboats. The system improves the ability of a helmsman to counter the heeling force of the wind on the sails by providing a swinging seat (40) supported by semicircular rail (30) for supporting the weight of the helmsman outboard of the sailboat. The system enables the helmsman to easily use his weight to limit the heel of the sailboat. The system is independent of mast (20) location and provides for tacking under a low boom (22). <IMAGE>
