I don't know how to add a link, but I found the game rules for Trippples at http://www.jobogames.com/rules/rules.htm. Also, there is a wooden version and a black plastic version of this game. Reputed to model the concept of psychocybernetics!? Made the 1980 GAMES magazine GAMES 100 (when published by Avalon Hill).
In an article at http://www.thegamesjournal.com/articles/PleaseRecycle.shtml it says "Recycling good mechanics is nothing new. As we fast forward again to today, we see Thorsten Gimmler's Cape Horn (Rio Grande) rework an idea from at least 20-25 years ago, last seen in a game called Trippples. In the process, Gimmler has given us an excellent race game of sailing ships around Cape Horn using tiles placed on the board to show which direction and how far the ships may move. Recycling is a key element in how great games are designed."
