On a recent almost non-stop 500 miles passage with a couple of mates up the North Sea I did a bit of a cockpit chat with Jon and Roger afterwards.
neither of them have raced at all but they are both good cruising sailors. Jon is used to sailing with me but Roger said he had never been sailing with anyone who tweaked the sails as much as I do
Moving cars, adjusting tension
in fact he accused me of suffering from ADHD
I know that, for me, a badly trimmed sail is a botheration to the psyche and an insult to the laws of physics
however, I was unaware that I had a problem with it - or more to the point that I was bothering people.
I must learn to touch the zen and let that edge flutter occasionally
