In Topic: 1d35 weather helm

23 February 2014 - 07:06 PM

The rake has to be wrong. It should have no helm in sub 8 knots and progressively more helm as the wind builds. In 15 plus knots requiring the traveller quite a bit below the centerline in puffs to reduce helm.

In really light air they like traveller WAY up with the boom a few inches above centerline and a lot of twist. Otherwise the boat has slight lee helm.

I will PM you tuning guide
