Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

When I wrote that I'm not sure I realized that light boats are going to round up easily in a good breeze. I don't mind sailing in a good blow. Having sailed on a few other boats of similar size since then, I think my weather helm is perhaps just a bit beyond normal. I did ease the backstay, which helped. I'm by myself almost all the time too. I remember the first time I had two guys that new how to sail with me...they jumped up on the rail and the boat was instantly balanced in 15 knots+. With just me, 12-14 knots means reef to keep the boat from excessive heel. It's surprising how much one or two people on the high side will balance our boat....Or even just me using the tiller extension and getting my 190 as far out as I can.

If you are in the light stuff all the time as you mentioned, single handing will be great. Of course if you are flying spin, you'll probably need some more hands to race efficiently.
BTW Does 4ktsb's translate to sail boats that go 4 knots? If so, I want to claim we have a 5ktsb's. I can go to wind routinely just above 5 knots per gps...5.5 when the bottom is clean. My top speed to date is 7.4 knots per gps...that was on a run and became a little scary.

Sailed today again. 45 and sunshine. 8-10 knots.

Yes. The rules for posting photos and PM's are a little frustrating.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

Yes, 4 kt sh!t box... 5kts...good to know. We many times get 10-15 knots but when summer rolls around, the winds can be pretty light. I just noticed that there was a bunch of weather helm. I did notice my mast does have a good rake to it. I may have to toy with that a bit. It may be just fine if it will point better. Either way, I'll probably sail it with the 130 for a while. I'll let you know what sort of speed I can get out of it. thanks for the picture!

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

If you look at where the clew is in relationship to the car, which is in it's most aft position, you can see there really isn't much left to add twist or flatten the head sail. That is the 135%. I don't think it was blowing much in that photo...lets hope not since I felt comfortable enough to leave the tiller lashed and take some photos from the bow.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

Yeah, I realize that I will either need to add a track or move the existing track back. I'm going to see if I can get it to sail close to it's hull speed on a good reach and then go from there.
