So I have a boat that is properly rigged and could go fast if I knew what I was doing. I have the control systems outlined in “ON THE SHORE” and I have checked I can move rake, jib sheeting and the other key controls through the full range I will need on the water and I have Calibration marks so I know where each control is set to in the range.

(If you haven’t checked your boat is properly configured on shore go HERE for the calibration details you need)

Now what?

Setting up a boat varies based on many things. Your size, your athletic ability, your style of sailing and many more. However, having a clear understanding of the basics and the knowledge of which direction you should be moving settings if you are not fast are essential if you are to improve. Or, do as I do, imitate, imitate, imitate”
