Hi everybody. I'm from Brazil, this is my first question to the forum. Please excuse me my english.
Going upwind I've noticed that normaly as the wind increases ( over 12 KN) the jib begins backwinding the lower part of the mainsail around the mast. To conteract this, normaly I open up the jib traveler car a little. Doing this should I still use maximum jibsheet tension ? Or should I also use less tension ?
Some datas to my setup. I have the new pos 2002 jib and main is also new, the jib blocks are attached to the second hole from the bottom in light to medium winds and in the first hole in strong winds.
Any thoughts or suggestions on that ?
