First off.. WOW.
Thanks for the indepth explanation.
I do have 2 'blocks' on each side. One is very large and one is very small.
I have only used the larger ones. I have contemplating using the small ones to backfeed my boom when running downwind ( which I havent tried yet ).
So I need to move my 'blocks' up to be in the middle of the front sail?
I did this on Saturday in very light winds, and had my front sail with a big 'pocket'. it was so far out, my girlfriend ( who knows less than me said.. is that a spinnker sail? ). I said no, but it was so far out, I could see how she thought it was.
I am going to look online for some diagrams to "dialing' it in.
I do agree it is much easier to be "showed" instead of "telling".
Thanks for the help.
I am just tired of being on the boat, feeling the wind, and boats are blowing by me, and me not knowing what I can adjust to 'maximize' the given wind.
( this happened all day saturday ).
