Looking to start Master Sunfish racing?
And more effective power less heeling momentFast boats around here seemed to have very low booms. Going for a decksweeper effect?
Sail it flat upwind even if you have a little lee helm.Looking to start Master Sunfish racing?
Upwind in port tack can trim harder than starboard tack.
This is because the sail is not on centerline. The fact that the gall and boom are to port of the mast means that the sail is not assymetrical just because of the mast but the sheeting angle is different as well.
When I used to race Fish, I tied my main sheet ~3" off centerline so the boom was parallel to centerline when sheeted hard. I was never great because I was about 60 pounds heavier than the boat liked.
