Suggestions to point higher

Recommended Posts

1. New sails, or at least a new jib.


2. New keel job...makes a huge difference particularly in tight lanes.


3. Try making the headstay longer in 1/4" increments. If the headstay is to short, the skipper tends to pull on the mainsheet too much tottery to get the bow up.


4. Lately, I have used a little backstay in the 8 - 10 knot range unless the water is super-flat. That keeps the headstay from moving around.


Also, speed helps point. So make sure the boat bottom is smooth, too.
