Development of trapeze system for dinghy sailing

University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för teknik och samhälle; Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för teknik och samhälle

Abstract:

 

This is a Bachelor degree project report describing the

development process of a trapeze system for dinghy

sailing. The project was performed in cooperation with

Seldén Mast AB, manufacturer of spars and rigging

systems for yachts and dinghies.

The trapeze system is used in some dinghy sailing

classes. It is used to move the weight of the crew outside

of the boat to compensate the force created by the wind

in the sails. The system consists of a number of

components. Focus of the project was set on the position

adjustment device and the attachment to the harness.

The product development process included a pre study,

a Product Design Specification, a function analysis,

concept development, embodiment, and detail design.

The project resulted in three products: two variants of

trapeze cleats (adjustment devices) and a trapeze ring (to

enable attachment to the harness).
