Bubblehead, thanks for the response and to answer your question yes I race any chance i get and i just absolutely love sailing, but what I guess I was trying to ask was more like little things in rigging like the thing with the jib sheets and the line of spectra to help with tacks that's great but i was thinking there was more little things like rounding the windward mark and putting up the spin quicker and getting the jib down quickly so that the spin can fill quicker and easier. Another would be on jibes, what kind of routine should I use so that I don"t get anything tangled and I get a clean jibe with minimal loss of speed. The only other thing that is probably the biggest is the communication of all the crew and skipper, and much practice.

thanks
