Featured product- New quick-release extension arm for steering wheels

by Sail-World Cruising on 1 May 2011
Forespar steering arm in use .. .
There are many easy times in cruising when a finger on the wheel is all you need - if your finger could only reach! There are also times when your visibility is better from the rail than from behind the wheel. Forespar’s new quick-release Steering Control Arm extends your functional range when behind the wheel, whether for better visibility or greater comfort.

Made specifically for use while motoring or easy sailing, the control arm allows the driver to move away from the helm station and still control the steering.

This extended range of movement has two specific benefits. First, it enhances safety by allowing the helmsman to move outboard to the rail, increasing their forward sightline. This is especially helpful when trying to see around large headsails. Second, it allows for a number of new sitting positions for additional comfort. On many boats this means the driver can now safely relax on the stern rail seat.

The Forespar Steering Control Arm uses a twist-lock extension with a special quick-release attachment clamp mounted to the wheel. It installs in seconds and can be easily deployed or removed with the simple push of a button.

No offence locals of England, but I believe we have had five sunny summer days in a row, which meant for a little sea breeze this afternoon, and four practice races ahead of official racing tomorrow and Sunday.
