The tuning guide on the website has lots of good instructions and tips on how to set up yoru rig, it's available to National 12 Owner's Association Members at https://www.national12.org/hints/tuning_guide/ can you access it?

Happy tuning

The principles in the guide should work for old and new boats alike. There are two good newsletter article which describes the settings for a Design 8 and the Crusader will be similar
