dub420sailor is on a distinguished road
From what I understand the rake changes the location of maximum draft in the main and affects the forestay tension, changing the shape of the leading edge of the jib (on a small boat like a 420 where nothing up there can be adjusted). Please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm not sure I'm remembering what I read correctly.
