Sailing is an amazingly liberating experience. The award-winning RS Venture Connect SCS makes it possible for almost anyone – and that means a lot to us. Many boats have been modified for para sailing. We like to think the RS Venture Connect SCS brings a new level of designed-in, engineered adaptability with simple, plug and play options including sip/puff electronic control to configure the boat for most disabilities – and change it between sessions to suit different requirements. This versatility encourages more organisations to develop para sailing programmes – it’s more cost and time efficient for existing programmes – and gives an unbeatable experience to a whole lot of sailors.
Power Assist Pack
The Power Assist Pack is a conversion kit that provides total engineered adaptability for most disabilities. It includes a rechargeable battery and control pack, powered captive mainsheet winch, joystick control and sip-puff headset option. The system is linked and connected using IPX7 watertight plugs and cabling. The design is focussed on providing a waterproof, simple to use system that exceeds the challenging demands of the small boat sailing environment and yet is a cost-effective investment for any sailing school. The watertight, rechargeable battery pack and control box is removable for charging in the club house.
A waterproof joy-stick both controls the rudders and also enables the mainsail to be trimmed in/out. A captive winch system, enclosed in a watertight housing, operates using 3D printed limit switches to eliminate over sheeting and the optional sip-puff headset integrates easily with the system steering controls.
