interesting, the length people will go to sail faster. of course that would not be me i dont think.
i am unable to move straps at moment as need very large headed philips screwdriver, as they are over tight.
i do take your point, having front foot coming loose is recipe for going alot slower than potential.
had other problem as well backfoot not coming out as about to initiate gybe, thats even slower.
no doubt slowboat chris L will be onto this idea soon.
i can beat him when he is not allowed in front straps, i think.
