Hi Frogman (or can I call you froggy)If your skiff rig is at 100% tune (in the18 or the 49r) in the puff, the mainsheet should not ease:
See forestay stability. com etc
There is some footage from the last Giltinan of the Kiwi winners, mainsheet immovable at top range big sail...
Google search of "forestay stability..." didn't produce anything for me.
I like to learn. If there are other good materials, could you attach links please.
I can't say our 15's are at anything like that level. But then we have a single rig across all wind ranges - mind you, so do the 49ers, so can't use that as an excuse.
