Thanks Deggsy
 
It sounds like this is one of the older toe straps.  You can get a new one from RS that has longer adjusting straps (you can also get it online from the RS website, or from a dealer).  There are quite a few similar size people that are sailing with these new straps; they seem to have enough length of adjustment.  Hope this helps
 
Happy sailing
David

The person who tried this was under 5ft and probably about 55 kg, they were just perched on the side deck using the full extension of the  existing toe strap, but with a short loop of rope between the toe  strap web loop and  floor fixing, this gave them a couple of extra inches to enable a reasonable hiking position. Their sail number was in the 1500’s. I would have tried it if it was allowed.

Thanks for your query Deggsy.  Sorry but it is not.  This has not been raised before.  Could you please provide more information about your self (your height, weight, other relevant factors, sail number etc) and the problem you have.  We will then initiate some discussions

Is it permissible to add a piece of rope  between middle toe strap webbing to floor fixing, thereby extending toe strap length to enable hiking for short person. Fig 24 reference in rigging manual .
