Hi everyone. I'm new to this site but and have picked up lots of good information so far. We have She Worthy, the Santana 20 for the women's group at Perry Yacht Club in Kansas. Yes, the one painted pink.
When running a bit short on time before racing and leaving the dock with a "close is good enough" comment on the shroud tension, we discovered just how sensitive and important the tension is to good pointing in various wind conditions. We definitely had one tack more favorable than the other going up wind. So lesson learned.
My question is what should the aft lower tension be on a boat that has no adjustable tracks? I am realizing just how important those adjustments are, but until we can add them to the boat, we'll have to make do.
