Re: How high can you point?

The headsail is a 130% dacron sail on a roller furler. It is a little baggy, and it is probably contributing to the boats poor pointing. The trades blow pretty well around here (Oahu), and we often have it rolled up partially and put a 3rd reef in the main. I will try to move the traveller to windward and see if that helps. I can feather up a little once I'm at 100 degrees. I will take her out again and make an accurate assessment using my GPS. Thanks for the responses.
