Course 4 - sail-trim rig-tune and general setup
A fast boat is a tactician's most powerful weapon - you seem to have it all under control.
We look at sail trim from a practical point of view, by looking at basic trim, cunningham, outhaul, etc and their effect, and not least how they interact with each other. We also look basic aero dynamics, so you can become your own trim-coach, and include twist, center of effort and 2-sail interaction.
Based on the Bermuda rig, we also look at how we can get the rig setup to support our sail trim, and how we can thereby expand the sails' optimal range at each end of the wind scale
Sails, sail trim, boat balance and heeling are connected in an inseparable pair race, and we look at how to get the most out of this interaction.
