Trapezoid W/L Optimist Yacht Club RSX Slalom Triangle Lipton Cup ezTrap Trap6 Plot

The Trapezoid family is the flagship product of ezTrap and contains both the popular 6-leg Trap6 course (shown at the left) and the full 7-leg Trapezoid course.

Both support two fleets with different parameters such as boat LOA, Average Speeds, and Tacking Angles. ezTrap will automatically adjust W/L lengths to meet the Target Race Times of each fleet.

The Trap6 course will support an optional 3rd fleet with an '1a' mark that can be placed a variable distance above or below Mark 1.

ezTrap works with one spreadsheet tab per course - an adjacent tab contains a summary of notes about the course. Two examples are shown below:

  • The 6-leg Trap6 course with the 1a option set for three small fleets of Lightning's, Snipes, and J/24s off Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; and,

  • A 7-leg Trapezoid Course set for Lasers and Laser Radials in St. Margaret's Bay, Nova Scotia.

For detailed information about these courses and others, please download the User's Manual.
