Re: Trimming "Zero"- Poplar Island Race

Easing the spinnaker halyard and foreguy can help on some boats in very light air, moving the projected area forward and clearing more from behind the main. 2' is a LOT though.

I think your foredeck person can be the second set of eyes to make sure the spinnaker halyard is two-blocked. Check and check again. Everyone supports everyone. Even rail meat should be looking around for what isn't right and asking questions. That's where your next generation of grinders and trimmers come from.

Your crew members that I met have really good potential. Y'all can do this.

Get that steering tightened up and invest time in your crew. You'll move up in the fleet.
