Update no 2,

Sail looks as if it is set better, still struggling for power a bit that may be not sailing in the right breeze as much as anything else!

What are people's go to control to power up first? Thinking shifty gusty lake, would it be cunningham or something a bit less obvious?

Also do you have a picture of the shroud Base trig you were referring to John?

Thanks all.

George

Hi Dare,

Interested in the rudder. Could you drop me a message if you'd be willing to sell it separately.

Thanks

Update no 1:

Spreaders had a fair bit of sweep back so we have straightened these up, running less tension and less kicker and the sail seems to be much less creased. Power was tricky to gauge as we sailed on a day with little breeze. Certainly happier with how everything looks so hopefully the speed will come with it!

Thanks to all for hints and tips so far

George

Thanks for the replies all. I have read the tuning guide and definitely need to have a measure and a fiddle with the rig.

My initial feeling is the the spreaders are swept back too much, setting us up for too much prebend. I think we need to make the rig easier to tweek on the go as it's a bit of a process to get jib tension on and off!

What effect does mast foot positon have on the rig ?

Thanks again.

George
