    Beneteau 10R

    On the 10r I beercan race with (generally) 5 crew...... Updated rudder. Base of mast in center position. 4-6 inches of mast pre-bend. Lighten the aft end of the boat, especially in light air.(toss tactician overboard) Store spare sails at base of mast, generally keep weight over the keel to reduce pitching. Use rail meat to control bow up/down and heel. Sails best relatively flat, 8-10 degrees heel max. 10-12 knots of wind is when we change from 130 jib to 105 jib. Jib barber haulers for 105 jib to be able to sheet well inboard. 12-15 knots is when we consider reefing to keep boat on her feet. Use backstay judiciously. What race? Regardless, best of luck!
