I was thinking the leach line too? Remembering to ease it when the winds dies is the part I often forget

To set your jib lead position correctly, sailing closehauled, head up:
- if the upper windward telltale lifts first, move the block forward,
- if the lower windward telltale lifts first, move the block aft.

In light air you may want to adjust the proper position a little forward for fullness, in heavy air, a little back to flatten the bottom of the sail.

If your leech is fluttering with the correct jib position in use, correct it with the leech line, if you cant then the jib needs to be worked over by a sailmaker.

heyross is on a distinguished road
Dear all,
I stand corrected. Part 6 should read leech cord and FOOT cord. SVAuspicious raises a good point in that too often, especially in a heavy race, we all want to pack up quickly often resulting in things like the leech chord setup for heavy weather sailing and it may now only be blowing 15 knots. Every time you pull your sails up, let all the fine tuning devices off and start all over again.
