The idea was pretty simple – use the inside track on flat water and light breezes and the outside track to open the slot when it blows a bit. We used ours a lot and were very happy with it, I must say.
Then along came adjustable jib cars and we went back to single tracks again. So if the double track system was so good, what are us mortals to make of this?

I believe it was the boat that narrowly missed the worlds by one point or something like that in the hands of Barry Parkin – and then subsequently became the steed of Russell Peters. One of them obviously is a twin track fan!! (Double click to enlarge the photo)
