Re: Proper use of the Traveler
Note - traveler is typically last sail control to be manipulated. First get the rest of controls dialed in and only then mess with traveler.
Also note, many modern performance rigs require hardly any traveler use. Bang sheeting and backstay are designed to 'effectively' depower sail.
A few modern performance rigs have even done away with traveler entirely
