Re: Pearson 30 rig tuning

Thanks for the websites. "Passeggiata" was too long on the hard and probably unstepped in the past (some evidence). Since I have never done this before, I want to learn, but the terms and complexities, when written, sound a bit detailed. But, I might watch someone do it the first time, and learn. I'm finding so many options and different recommendations based on specific boats and racer vs. cruiser when I webcrawl......alot of data. I do want performance but I won't formally race this year. Think I should "learn" her first.
I've got a 100 (dacron - almost new - with racing battens), 150 (a bit long in the tooth), 160 drifter (mylar - almost new) and fully battened main (neither old or new).
Whether all that sail info matters, I don't know.
But, again, I'll check out the sites you gave. I want to move her from Rock Hall, MD to her permanent slip near Havre de Grace area in a few weeks and want to have this done before I take the long, first "real" sail.
Thanks for your help.
