Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

Just to clarify, did you correct to 5th or finish 5th? Either way, that is good racing for first time out. I sail on a small inland lake that has very few sailboats, so I don't have much to compare to locally. I helm and crew on other boats racing on the river in Louisville...from that experience it seems to me that my Cal would compete well, but until you are next to the other boats racing, I guess I'm just not sure. That's why you are being quizzed.
My issue is I want to race spin....the spin fleet I would be sailing in is the last fleet off the line. Winds diminish around here, and I would be the highest phrf in that fleet. I don't want to be thanking the committee boat for staying up late every week. Might just end up in JAM for a season and see how it turns out.

I purchased a new 135% three seasons back. I had the foam put in the luff so it can be furled for reefing. I think 130 to 135 is a good balance, and can be reduced to 110 or so without losing too much sail shape. I sail by myself most of the time....I remember the first time I had two full sized adults males on the rail with me, I was surprised at how much more wind we could handle under full sail. So a little crew weight will help you out with the balance on her. I believe the original Cal 22 sail was a 130. I increased the roach on the new main too, as I am sailing in light winds most of the summer.

Thanks for info,

Ron

Mine goes to the masthead so We can fly a bigger chute. I need a fixed tie on the forward station for the halyard though, it tends to get caught in the jib roller gear otherwise.

It was 5th corrected, lots of 40+ footers racing, probably more like 25 the at the line. To be honest, I was pretty clueless, it was a learning session for me. First time I have ever raced anything with a keel except maybe a Star.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

Chris,

So this is looking astern on the port side seat back cushion. The outboard side of the horizontal wood is cut to the form of the hull. The inboard side is straight, and this is where you attach the backrest. It appears to me that the backrest itself was connected to the horizontal board before the fabric was put on, because it screws from inside the backrest to the edge of the horizontal piece....which is a poor method. One end of mine is weak where the screw has stripped out of the wood edge. The outboard side of horizontal piece screws directly down to the ledge formed by the hull. You can see a couple of those screws on the right side in the photo. There are two vertical braces. (one pictured)One in the middle and one on the aft end. You want to keep the height in mind when you attach the backrest....there should be enough room for your shoulder to slip under the rest when laying down as this is supposedly a berth too. Run some wire through to port below the sink....you never know when you might want to have some 12 v forward. Water pressure for instance.

Hope this helps,

Ron
