Just acquired a small sports boat with asymmetric kites, I intend to do round the buoys club racing. As we don’t have the luxury of a chart table,is there any way I can set up the boat easily for the correct hoist on different legs.

Great.

Are you trying to put the Foredeck Union out of work?

That won't end well for the folks in the back of the bus.

easy, sail non spin. just leave the one you got up. -OR- always use the hatch or companionway (small boat) , always assume port hoist and bring the clew around if you gotta, always take down on the port side, down the same hole it cam out of. it's ready to go up in a jiffy. if it's bigger, have a retriever line on the kite, preferably a belly button. you pull, the kite collapses as you go and you automatically get the foot in.

Now for those girlfriends tits....(or the Ex-girlfriend, we won't tell her)

I can see your problem......without a chart table you won't know which side to set it......and for weight and cost reasons you probably won't want to add in a galley or a water-maker (these could do the job of a chart table of course)..........let me do some research and get back to you.

i'm just going out......I could be a while.......

I'd use a paper chart, a pencil to mark the bouys/course and course to next mark. wind direction is on your display. and a polar diagram with sail overlap like this.Posted Image

ya know, in leiu of a pencil he could use Expedition to figure this out for him. Maybe a toughbook in the cockpit....much easier than installing a chart table and way cooler. figure 6k for the toughbook and expo, and another 10 for the instruments which aren't on the boat yet. Stick a fork in it and call it done!

who uses a chart table now in the days of the Ipod, As for what sail to use, there is an app for that.

Or you could just do it the old school way and sail your boat and work out for your self what accualy does work. But that wouldn't be internet sailing now would it. I'm sure none of the top fellas accualy wear out their gear sailing the boat.

Despite all the crap from our clever dickheads there is a tool for predicting the wind over the side of the boat for any given compass direction, which is what you want.
Look up Wottac and that will give you the answers
tell the guy who posted the remote yo shuv it up where the sun dont shine
