    Getting caught in irons

    I agree with the speed thing and ill try the greater angle...in strong winds the kicker, out and down haul are tight up wind....ill try to release the kicker just before i tack....

    Getting caught in irons

    I normally sail in winds of 20mph with full rig but not around marks.... I find that if i sit well forward i can sail real close to the wind , but today the wind was coming from all over the place...i think it was that i didnt have enough speed whe n i made the tack...but i also got stuck in...

    Getting caught in irons

    Tried my first race today, with winds of 25mph gusting 35 i decided to be a woos and drop the sail down to a radial, apart from death rolling more times than i can remember, what i dont understand is that on the windward mark i kept getting caught in irons when i tacked....? really narked me off...

    Call me thick but why does the hull sing?

    I've been watching....at the moment I'm fine tuning everything...trying to get everything set right...At the moment where i sail there is only myself.. and the wind is either below 10 knots or as like today 20 knots..And being a large expanse of inland water..I tend to go out in the stronger...
