Hi, I just bought a vang and I have only just noticed that the block which attaches to the boom does not have a beckett, so my question is how do I set it up with this style of block, photo will be attached. Thanks
What is the fastest way to sail downwind on flat waterways, I don't know whether s turns are legal but I am guessing not, I usually make the biggest gains downwind but I just seem to have very slow downwind legs, any tips on how to be quicker?
Quick question still related to the topic, does the rig size make any difference to how difficult it is to pull in the mainsheet in decent wind?
I am 17 and I do fall under the recommended weight range for the standard rig package, however I find it's manageable at my club as its a small inland...
I use a 6.5mm anti-twist mainsheet, I have a standard Harken 2.25 inch ratchet block. I have a vang swivel and a few spare small blocks laying around, I will try to experiment with some systems, I sail at a casual club so the members aren't fussed about official rig rules etc.
When I sail my laser, I always find it difficult to pull block to block for upwind legs, and when I manage it, it is hard to maintain tension on the line for long periods of time, it sometimes results in some wrist pain the following day.
I sail an old 1981 Laser Standard with the original kit...
