Hi, I just bought an old bim 2000, and since I don't have much cat sailing experience I have a few basic questions.
In what order do you depower (cunningham, outhaul, mast rotation, sheet, traveler)?
The thing that really confuses me is mast rotation. Since the mast bends on two axes I don't really understand how it works and how it affects the sail shape. Could someone please explain how to use it, especially upwind when overpowered. :huh: Is there a general rule on what the basic setup should be? Thanks a lot for any help :)
