I do race informally and want to get better performance than I am currently. It's my first season sailing so I'm still figuring out sail shape basics but getting better.[/QUOTE]Recommend Ivar Dedekam's Sail and Rig Tuning.

And yes: You'll be wanting that vang. It has a wide range of uses. Basically: Just about any time the boom's wanting to bounce, the vang is handy
