Re: Should I bother with a back stay adjuster
IMO a backstay adjuster is a near imperative on small (or big) fractional rigs.. without it much of the advantage of that type of rig would be lost.
With more control and finesse in your sailplan you'll be inspired to spend more time outside the breakwater!
