Am a relative rookie and am trying to defend the Hobie image against a couple of Dart 18's in the local area. Am using a new sail on an older boat and the mast rotates all the way to the the stop, consequently the mast is almost ninety degrees to the wind causing slight luffing of the main immeditely aft of the mast. I am certainly loosing some power and find I can't point as high as others
Don't recall if it happened with the OLD sail. Shroud tension, etc, seems to be in accordance with the recomendations of this forum but am not sure about down and out hauls on the main. Anybody know what rigging or tension changes are needed to keep the mast in line with the sail?
