I'm bad with knots so I took the traveler line, found the middle and tied a small simple loop in it (just big enough to slip the end of the main sheet thru), pass the main sheet end thru the traveler loop and tie a figure 8 in the main sheet so it can't slip thru the loop in the traveler. Done...
Congrats drm901, I'm done responding to sailors on this board. Its been a good time until now trying to help other C14.2 sailors and just be part of a good community. So now you can answer the questions on how to sail the boat higher and faster.
Why try to help if some six sigma guy is just...
Who's coming to San Diego to sail the NAs. The wind was perfect yesterday at 13-18 knots, clear and sunny. Nice fleet of 14.2 s out having good fun and hard racing, even a couple of protests in fleet...WOW! Make your plans to get here to race. Good people, good venue, good RC and lots to do and...
I wouldn't use the foam as it may actually pick up water and hold it making the boat heavier. Plastic water containers sound much better and invest in a good cuddy hatch that latches closed when you are sailing so you can just keep the water out from below decks.
On flat water 18-20 knots of breeze is about it for me to be able to safely tack the boat upwind, but I don't have a reef. Jib stays in, play the main sheet. With 2-3 foot waves, it would be tough to race in 17 knots up. I go in when its not fun anymore and capsizing almost happens on every tack.
Get a C14.2 with a centerboard. It will be more fun to sail as it will be quicker, more responsive, very easy to trailer and lanch. If you want to beach the boat to take a lunch break, lift the board and kick up the rudder, same if you run a ground. I also think the resale of a centerboard...
From inside the boat look down into the centerboard well. If the gasket is up in the well, use a long paint strirring stick or wood yard stick and try to push the gasket back out the bottom of the boat one side at time.
Plan b. Remove the center board by 1st releasing the shackle that is...
Jib and main should be eased off a little, get the boat speed going by reaching a little and then bring the boat up to a pointing mode while maintaining boat speed. If you're over trimmed or under trimmed the boat will not go well. In the light stuff it should point just fine if you can keep the...
