In moderate to heavy wind, I am experiencing an issue with the jib where the leech flaps back and forth, sometimes violently. It is noisy, I am sure inefficient, and likely to damage the sail before long. I have experimented with traveler positions and line tension with no significant change.
I previously owned an H17 Sport with an aftermarket Calvert jib of a very similar shape that had the same problem. The Calvert sail had a leech trim line that, when tension was increased, would completely eliminate this issue.
I am assuming the jib I have is a Hobie original.
Does anyone out there have experience curing this issue? Is there a solution other than adding a leech trim line to my current sail or buying a new sail equipped with one? Does Hobie ever use such a trim line?
