Sailing close hauled?
Flying a C&C 30'. When trying to sail close hauled, everything I have read says I should be able to sail 45 degrees to the wind. However, according to my compass, the best I can do is 60 degrees without luffing the jib.
I have the jib trimmed tightly, the mainsail boom on centerline. What can I do to improve my close hauled sailing?
Would moving jib inside of shrouds when sailing close hauled help?
