Out on the wire. The trapeze isn't used during one-design races but is a fun "toy" for the crew to enjoy on a breezy day.

Two members of Arizona's Viper sport sailboat fleet kindly hosted guests for a "Viper Demo Day" at Lake Pleasant on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The shots above show Laurent's Viper no 31 playing on the lake with the asymmetric spinnaker deployed on a broad reach much of the time.
