Re: What class is my PHRF boat? A,B,C

That track is far aft, maybe the former owner only raced in light air, that short track may only fit a large jib, maybe a 170% or a 150% with a high clew. If the 150% is your primary use sail, hopefully it'll trim OK to that track.

When you want to start improving higher wind performance, you need to install a similar track aft the chain plates for a smaller jib, someone on the C&C list should have the factory location diagram for that track (I had it 30 years ago, but stuff wasnt digital then...). until then, whenever you use a small jib you will be pointing some 10 degrees or so less than optimum.

Certified...in several regards...
