Well just to add fuel to the fire I started out with centre on 3525 and liked it very much. I'm now giving aft a try and seem to be getting on ok. There is certainly more room for the crew and the boat feels less cluttered. the centre jammer was great though as it gave me free hand some of the time.
Ian, We must meet up and have a sail. I have been sailing at Ranalagh, Datchet and Thorpe Bay. I have the foil on pretty much all the time and I think that was what the other DCB owners thought when they started (please correct me you others). I would reduce it a bit up wind when the wind gets up to reduce the bow down effect and on a reach to promote plaining. Having said that others might ay that bow down upwind is always good except in a big sea and I know the 14 boys keep it on off wind and sit right on it! I expect you are off to BW and will learn loads there!
