Re: Easing the Mainsheet

Paul, after this weekend, I can definitely vouch for the MkIII being tender! Do you post on the C&C Association site?

ShockT, I figured it out. There are two blocks (one above the other) on each end of the traveler, with a cam cleat above each pair. There is also a cam cleat back near the wheel. I think the Previous-Previous Owner (who raced the boat) had it set up so you could use the forward cam cleat if you had crew in the cockpit to pull it upwards. When singlehanding, I think he either stood in front of the wheel, or just ommitted this cleat and ran straight from the lower block back to the rear cam cleat. Smart. Wish I could pick his brain..
