Description

A great car toppable beginner day sailer designed by Gary Hoyt. 11'5" and 195 lbs it's easy to transport an even easier to rig. NEW SAIL!
Rigging up is easy. The sail slips over a light, two-piece aluminium mast and is secured with industrial-grade Velcro. There are only two lines; one rolls and unrolls the sail around the mast, and the other is the sheet. A spring-loaded kick-up rudder and a retractable daggerboard get you in and out of shallow water. The boom is inserted into the deck just aft of the mast, where it pivots according to trim.

A great feature for beginners is Escape’s color-coded AutoSail system. Just forward of the mast, a wind indicator spins atop a color-coded card. Corresponding colors encircle the base of the pivoting boom. Line up the arrow on the boom with the color indicated by the windex and youÕre in trim. I’ve been sailing for 40 years and I found myself peeking to see if the AutoSail agreed with me. It mostly did; when it didn’t, it was more on track than I was.
