Re: Help...I take a beating when beating!
Is this one design sailing or phrf, what type of boat, age and type of sails, crew weight, jib selection, faired bottom and appendages... All of this effects upwind speed.
My Olson 30 for instance gets killed going upwind against, we'll pretty much everything. We make it back up down wind and reaching. Compared to other Olson 30's though we do pretty well upwind, depending on crew weight on the rail.
