Despite still sailing two to three days a week on my Aero, my Lateral Epicondylitis has now cured itself. It must be one or a combination of these three things.
|the black Aero sheet is much easier to hold|
- There is no hanging of the mainsheet, the Aero has to be sailed very flat and in 18 plus knots, the boat foots onto a semi plane upwind and is kept in that mode with constant adjustments for gusts and waves.
- The mainsheet is much thicker than the regular Laser sheet. It can be easily held with no gloves or regular yacht gloves. So much kinder on the hands.
- The weather helm is very light, the sheeting arm gets a rest on the next tack.
Steve Cockerill knows the Laser causes tennis elbow. Steve was interviewed by Yachts and Yachting following his win in the 2017 Aero Worlds. (full article)
