Re: Keel shape and pointing

Finally got back out to the lake for a race this weekend. Only got one pic though. No time ahead of the race as the entire fleet was stuck in the harbor waiting for 40+ mph winds to pass. For the race we had 20-25 with gusts over 30. Main reefed, and flying the 90% up front. I was trimmed more for keeping the rudder in the water than speed. Maybe next time.

I will say though that after tuning the rig our pointing was better. I poked the wrong button on my tracking app and managed to erase the data, but we were pointing with everyone else.
