Re: Windward Performance
To help with fasters point, I have taken my jib/genoa's and literally drawn a line with a black sharpie at this point, so it is easier to see if the carr is in the correct position for how are out or in the head sail is.
I would swag as others, something is not right with the carr position. Along with I usually have the rig set to 15%. If you have a loos guage, set the rig one day to 12, then to 15, then to say 18, and see if you can tell any difference in how the boat sails etc. Then set to where it is best per say. It may turn out 12 is best.
Also as noted, new sails will help too! BUT, C30's with the track way out side of the rail, will have some issues pointing as well as say a fractional rig, or one with shrouds that are more inward. Shoal draft rigs do not point as well as deeper draft rigs......generally speaking! mind you!
