    stupid trim question CE

    If you have a big overlapping Genoa, make sure that's trimmed right first. Assuming the headsail trim is good, flatten the main - crank on more main sheet and drop the traveller to maintain boom where you want it. The big Genoa is probably doing most of the work. Make it look pretty. ...or maybe just point higher. I have sailed a few Merit 25's, which like more back-stay. Seems to help them point higher. As mentioned, sea state will make a difference. Regardless, sailing flatter should help. De-power, less heel, point higher, trim in, back-stay on, and go. Then re-trim as the wind, hull speed & heading change. That's the fun bit, right?
