    49er rigging problem

    Is this the only driving rule for the mast rake? C.9.3 DIMENSIONS (a) The forestay length is controlled by laying the forestay along the forward face of the mast spar and measuring the extension of the forestay beyond the mast heel. This distance shall be taken between the forward...

    49er rigging problem

    Thanks @JulianB for the good advice as always. I'll make a try next days! I also have a pretty good spinnaker from 2019 still never used by me, I can try it to clear my doubts. And what about the lenght of the spinnaker pole? I can quickly modify it tweaking an eye splice and it can change a...

    49er rigging problem

    Actually I've just sailed it once with 8-12kts and the main issue is while sailing downwind the kite too nervous and unstable due to the excess of luff tension. But as @JulianB says this is most likely related to the old style kite fitted up to the mast head.

    49er rigging problem

    Ciao a tutti! I've recently switched from an old 49er to a newer one with the full carbon rig. I am finding hard rigging the mast in a correct way and I would need some suggestions to fit it better. I am feeling that the mast has a too costant bending curve instead of having the bottom...
