Oxley Levante Set Up - How to set up the Oxley Levante

Join the Barefoot Doctors Sailing to see how to set up an Oxley Levante on a Leopard 50 sailing catamaran.

Here is the fastest and easiest way to set up the Oxley Levante (winged spinnaker) when they arrive new in the box! Paul Badenhorst who is an experienced skipper with over 285,000nm under his belt, shows how to set up this Oxley Levante on the front trampoline of the boat, in this case a Leopard 50 catamaran.

This technique avoids the need to find a large field and is faster and easier too – as we have done it both ways!

This short how to video is specifically time at people that have ordered a new Oxley and shop the steps to unpack it and run the lines and the sock for successful, fast and easy sailing downwind. We commonly sail our Leopard at 50% of the true wind directly downwind and higher percentages when at higher angles! The ease of operation and forgiving nature of the sail makes this ideal for long distance downwind sailing and eliminates the risk of gybing and the stress of sailing deep!!!

For more information and to order your Oxley, contact either Paul on Facebook or WhatsApp (+27 73 510 0081) or Marcos on email marcos@oxleysa.com.

Our exciting Patreon option from only $3 per week, will allow our supporters to enjoy live updates on positions and daily logs on the Atlantic crossing as well as join us for sailing events in Gocek, Turkey (Sept 2023), Aegean Greece, May 2024. Then in Dubai Jan 2025 (aboard the new Portofino 52) join us for the launching party and test sails!!! We are also offering boat build tours with sailing off Dubai to share the progress of the P52 build and provide whatever sailing or life discussions that YOU want us to provide during all of these events….. It is a very exciting prospect and we have been requested repeatedly to give advice, take folk sailing, teach sailing techniques etc etc…. So here it is!!!

Any Patreons will have the choice to join us for these events which are usually about 5 days to be up close and personal with Eli and John and learn from their expertise… There will be sailing trips, excursions and chats during the events and the subjects will be designed to suit the participants that will be there. Patreons will receive all the sailing and talks with the Barefoot Doctors without any cost but will only have to cover their own travel, food and accomodation costs.

Some come Barefoot with us on this exciting journey – now physically and in person with Patreon if you wish!!!
