Re: how high well does my boat point?

If its the same Columbia that we had in Australia in the 1970's it will only point well downwind.

But you cant tell till you have your new genoa.

My boat is not a great pointer, so instead of getting frustrated i try to just go with its flow, keep the boat speed up and reduce leeway.
