    Capri 14.2 Standard Sail Size?

    Need some help...rigging

    Well it's my first time with a Capri 14.2 as well. What I used to get started on the rigging is the "free C14 Handbook" link above. Click on that link and go to page 16 I think. There you should find a sketch of the rigging. Hope this helps. Good luck!
