調子良いウエストハーネスにお金をかけることは自分のセイリングを楽しみながら、上達するための道具を買う時に最も重要なことです。

最新のブランドをチェックしながら、ロビーの良いアドバイスを聞いてみましょう。

ロビー;いろいろな種類のハーネスやいろいろな長さのハーネスラインなどがあります。そのため何が良いのか迷ってしまうかもしれません。正直な答えだと、個人の好みや何を使い慣れているかによります。以下がPWAのトップ選手たちのハーネスラインの長さです。

Jason Polakow: 26cm

Robby Swift: 28cm

Ricardo Campello: 30cm

Marcilio Browne: 34-36cm

Kauli Seadi: 34-36cm
これを見てわかるように5人のセイラー達が5”8〜6”2の長さで、5つの違ったハーネスラインの長さを使っています。それは彼らの背の高さや腕の長さ、好みにあったものを彼らがチョイスしているからです。

ハーネスラインのつける幅は、離した方がいい人もいるし、近づけた方がいいって言う人もいます。僕はき強風の時はより良いコントロール性能が欲しいので少し離します。ライトウィンドやガステイな風の時はラインのつける幅は狭くしています。セイルを固定しないでパンピングできるように。

As far as harnesses go, there is also a huge range you can choose from and, once again, a lot of it is down to personal preference. I personally tend to go for a harness that has the following features:

• Wide enough to offer good support when landing high jumps on your back, yet not so wide that it restricts your movement from side to side and makes you feel stiff.
• I also like the spreader bar to be nice and stable in front of you, not flopping up and down with your movement so you can really concentrate on your sailing rather than looking down to check what’s going on with your spreader bar when lining up for a jump or dropping into a wave.
• I definitely like good back support since I like to sail for many hours a day and many days a week, so you need gear that protects you from the strains that windsurfing can put on your back.
• Luckily for me, I spend most of the year in warm climates, so a nice soft, comfy top and bottom of the harness are very important so that you don’t get a rash when sailing without a top on.
Other than that of course, the colour and look of the harness is important. It’s the most visible part of your attire, so choose one that you like to look at, so when you are Go-Pro’ing yourself or getting your wife to film you (good luck with that!), you will like the way the shots come out!
Happy sailing!

ENGLISH

Investment in a good waist harness can be one of the most important bits of kit you buy if you want to enjoy and progress your sailing and save money on visits to the physiotherapist! We take a look at the latest offerings from the brands and Robby Swift gives us his expert advice.
ROBBY SWIFT…

There are so many waist harnesses out there and so many different lengths of harness lines etc. that it can get a bit confusing. To be honest, a lot of it is down to personal preference and what you are used to. Here is a list of sailors and the harness line lengths they use:
Jason Polakow: 26cm
Robby Swift: 28cm
Ricardo Campello: 30cm
Marcilio Browne: 34-36cm

Kauli Seadi: 34-36cm

So as you can see, there are 5 sailors ranging from 5’8” tall to 6’2” tall, all with 5 extremely different harness line lengths which do not correlate at all to their height or arm length and they all make it work for them.Some people say that you should have your lines spread far apart and some say you should have them close together. I personally find that in high winds I like to put the lines a little farther apart for more control and in lighter, gustier winds I like to put them closer together so I can pump the sail a little without unhooking.

As far as harnesses go, there is also a huge range you can choose from and, once again, a lot of it is down to personal preference. I personally tend to go for a harness that has the following features:

• Wide enough to offer good support when landing high jumps on your back, yet not so wide that it restricts your movement from side to side and makes you feel stiff.

• I also like the spreader bar to be nice and stable in front of you, not flopping up and down with your movement so you can really concentrate on your sailing rather than looking down to check what’s going on with your spreader bar when lining up for a jump or dropping into a wave.

• I definitely like good back support since I like to sail for many hours a day and many days a week, so you need gear that protects you from the strains that windsurfing can put on your back.
