Looking for gaff rig dinghy sailing experience

I am the lucky owner of a gaff rigged 14'9" reproduction of a Tuckup sailboat. I have experience as a windsurfer but dinghy sailing is new to me and I am looking for gaff rigged experienced sailors
to compare notes with on some of the unique aspects of sailing with these classic sails.

The Tuckup is similiar to a Melonseed.

Thanks very much,
Jim Lee
14'9" Delaware Bay Tuckup
