J 33 Mainsail Trim

Recommended Posts

We bought a used 33 last year and had a lot of fun racing it.

We did not embarrass the competition but we had moments and races where we all thought wow, this boat can really win.

The main is such a big part of this design - more so than on a J 35 as a % of sail area.

I read on SA somebody had made a point of commenting that over trimming the main on the 33 would absolutely kill it.

I was wondering if anyone had some firsthand experience with mainsail trim on the 33 and could share some information?  

Sail trim and or set up.  Thanks
