Re: Main and Jib Trailing Edge Flapping

Followed your advice on my recent sailing. It worked. I moved jib sheet car more forward to provide more downward pressure on jib leech. Tightening the main sail outhaul and the cunnigham also helped, and followed the sail trim advice from SparCraft.
Thanks for all the input
