A harness device worn by sailors on some dinghy, skiff or catamaran classes of boats which, with a metal stay from the mast, lets them lean almost completely outboard.
Wire gear enabling a crewmember to place all of his weight outboard of the hull, thus helping to keep the boat level.
In Sailing, the trapeze refers to a wire that comes from a point high on the mast, usually where the shrouds are fixed, to a hook on the crew member's harness at approximately waist level. The position when extended on the trapeze is outside the hull, braced against it (or an extension of it outwards) with the soles of the feet, facing the masthead, and clipped on by a hook on the trapeze harness. This gives the crew member more leverage to keep the boat flat by allowing the crew member's centre of gravity to balance the force of the wind in the sails.
Trapeze were an English rock band formed in March 1969, by vocalist John Jones and guitarist and keyboardist Terry Rowley (who named the band), with singer and guitarist Mel Galley, bassist Glenn Hughes, and drummer Dave Holland. The band had a fairly fluid line up, finally dissolving in 1994, and although they never found commercial success themselves, several members went on to join better known bands including Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Judas Priest and Uriah Heep.
