Drawing on extensive experience with the twin rudder ‘Bénéteau Figaro 2’ and developed in partnership with Sea Ventures UK with over a year of prototyping and refinement onboard the Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300.  The E BAR, developed and produced by Fourth Cape Ltd. fuses a combination of light weight carbon tube with precision engineering to allow smooth rudder toe in/out adjustment whilst sailing. 

The remotely adjusted, steering link bar controls the toe in/out setting onboard boats with twin rudders which require adjustment to minimise drag and maximise control, whilst correct rudder toe provides improved handling – all elements increase average speeds.

The remotely adjusted link bar controls the toe-in/out setting onboard boats with twin rudders.  Optimal adjustment minimises windward rudder drag and maximises control, delivering improved handling – all elements that increase average speeds.
The E BAR is a proven design with success onboard Jeanneau Sun Fast and JPK twin ruddered ranges. 

 

 

The E-BAR, developed and produced by FourthCape combines a lightweight carbon tube with precision-engineered ends and actuator for smooth Toe In/Out adjustment of rudders whilst sailing. 

The remotely adjusted link bar allows optimal adjustment of a twin rudder system, minimising windward rudder drag and maximising control, delivering improved handling – that increases average speeds.

A proven design having been selected by fully crewed and double-handed teams alike, with race success onboard Jeanneau Sun Fast and JPK twin rudder boats.

Hydrodynamic flow much like aerodynamic flow requires trimming, as you would trim a jib for the various points of sail, with the E-BAR you can now trim your rudders to the heel angle and speed of the boat.

FEATURES

> Lightweight carbon fibre steering bar

> Minimal power consumption adjusting

> Intelligent IP68, illuminated, waterproof Keypad allows adjustment on deck 

> Integrated sensor allows Toe In/Out position to be displayed on yacht’s instruments

> Simple upgrade for:  

                 Jeanneau Sun Fast; 3200, 3300 & 3600

                 JPK; 1010, 1030, 1080, 1180

The E-BAR’s integrated sensor provides a signal for connection to a yacht’s instrument system.

This connection allows the output of the sensor to be available on existing displays, showing the Toe adjustment and enabling settings to be logged against other data, for performance analysis and optimisation.    

The sensor can be directly linked with a B&G H5000 processor via the analogue input or other instrument systems via a simple interface box taking the sensor’s 0-3v linear analogue output.
