Re: Trimming "Zero"- Poplar Island Race

Puddinlegs has good advice. Rich's boat has the mainsheet behind the wheel so that means weight aft is a reality. You can't drive and trim main at the same time.

Check the SIs - some clubs don't like roll tacking. Get the tack itself right first before you add things like roll tacking.

sail fast and eat well, dave S/V Auspicious
