Topics I've Started

Beyond the tuning guide

27 August 2016 - 12:51 PM

I've been playing with mast butt position for the last couple of years and feel like I have a clue into it's impact on boat feel. Throughout I've used the standard shroud tension numbers but now want to start experimenting with different shroud tensions than standard to understand the impacts. Here's the question; everything else being equal, how would increasing upper tension impact the feel of the boat upwind? Lowers?

Yes, this is on a J24 with reasonably fresh rags.
