Measuring the angle of a rudder

Measuring up

Mar 26, 2012

Jim Antrim has gone to great lengths -- and angles -- to ensure California Condor's rudders perform well!
In this photo, Jim, Condor's designer, measures the relative angles of the two rudders, and if you want to get technical, the rudders should not be exactly parallel.
California Condor, and owner Buzz Blackett, have had many successes on the local race scene over the past year. The Class 40 racer will compete in this year's Pacific Cup, slated for July. We're very partial to Condor's success. In case you didn't know, Condor was built at Berkeley Marine Center.
