At our first Off the Water Training in January, we discussed our next session  which is on Sails and how they work! There was a lot of enthusiasm and lots of  questions put forward:

We will have 30 minutes very basic chat. There will be something for everyone!
Here are some of the questions:

 

  • How do you set up a rig?
  • Light wind sailing…Is it best to have the main outhaul on tight…Downwind or outhaul eased?


  • Best way to increase luff tension in foresail: Tighten halyard or pull on backstay?


  • When do you employ kicker?


  • Tips for light airs sailing…..


  • Do you have to do anything different when trimming a furling foresail than you do when using standard genoa?


  • How do all the different tell tails work?


  • How do you get the best out of old sails and what can the Sail Doctor offer to do to upgrade old sails, if anything?
