Judel/Vrolijk Design TP52.
Project management – Chris Hosking / Tim Powell
Constructed – Green Marine 2010
Chris Hosking’s aggressive approach to race boat optimisation was manifested in the creation of RAN-4. A no-holes-barred approach to weight reduction and minimalism, Chris let STAYINPHASE and Steve Koopman create a winch system which drew heavily from recent experience but also introduced a new approach to how the structure and systems could work together.
Ground breaking concepts saw structural elements used as a hydraulic reservoir and other structural components as a function of gearbox mounts. Flowing from the 2009 Artemis TP52, with its first ever sub-deck mounted takedown system, we advanced the concept further.
STAYINPHASE provided many composite components for this system. To finish things off, we tuned all winches & gearboxes at our workshop to reduce friction levels.
