  1. 1. Go low before you try to go high upwind. 2. Get away from the weather mark fast, so go high before you go low. 3. Tight sails and crew are slow too. Don’t oversheet or over serve. 4. Focus on smooth turns, tacks and gybes. 5.The point wants to point naturally if it is fair and tuned. Figure out how to let it run. Just my opinion.
  2. Need to check the technical rules, but I don’t believe one is allowed to cut the teak combing or feed a line through the teak combing. Although this may have changed. So the teak block is the way to go.

    main halyard shackle

    I would cut the halyard above the splice and tie it on each time. Provided you have enough halyard to do that.
