    I got this from someone else here, so I take no ownership.

    This is a manual for the capri 14.2. I will break this up as 2 parts.

    Read through all the posts on this website...

    Several members are WAY more adept (than I) at the design/racing of this boat. Many of your questions will be answered.

    This is an unforgivingly fast, and tender boat, that can be tamed easily, with a little of practical preparation. You chose the BEST small boat you could have. It will prepare you for much bigger, or if you decide to, reward you for years to come.

    It is not slow, and never dull to sail!

    Welcome to the club!

    This is my first post. I picked up my Capri 14.2 today:D. I sat in my driveway fumbling for several hours. Your post is very much appreciated here. SHNOOL thanks for the great info and TUFBUT thanks for starting this thread.

    No problem... Both of you guys are east coast "neighbors." Glad I could help. There are several other posts relevant once you get the "standard" config.

    Read posts related to "improvement pictures." There was an in depth discussion a few weeks ago about rigging of the traveler. Line sizes. and also the centerboard.

    It helps to see the pictures too. As I discovered, there were several rigging things missing on my own boat, that I'd have never known about had I not seen the stuff here.

    Rigging Pictures

    I've started amassing pictures of various rigging, so, if you need one in particular, let me know and I'll send you what I have.

    I am another newbie. The link below will take you to the current UCLA Capri 14.2 sailing manual pdf. It was a huge help to me. It has a chapter on rigging with excellent color photos.

    Thanks MajorH, that PDF is the best starter manual for anyone just starting out sailing, not just starting out with the Capri.

    Treehugger, where in Ohio are you located and where do you sail. I am in Northfield, Ohio, 30 minutes south of Cleveland and sail on LaDue reservoir and Pymatuning reservoir. Also welcome to the group.
