I have recently purchased N3418 New Isabella and have completed our 1st series sailing in Plymouth.
We're having a few issues as the breezy increases. 5-8 knots we are dynamite quick, anything above this pointing and boat speed are an issue.
I have tried following the N12 tuning guide but think i might be missing a trick.
I've raked the rig back further - no help
I've increased the rig tension leaving the forestay at base.
I've increased forestay tension leaving shrouds at base.
The rig always seems very straight so I tried lengthening the spreaders but cannot get it to bend enough for the mast ram to have any affect.
Any help and advise will be gratefully received.
If anyone has Baggy Trousers specific tuning numbers they would be gratefully received too.
