Sail Trim Tips from Sten ...
in light winds
below 5knts I use max cunningham and no kicker. twisting
off the top of the sail.
In Medium winds 6 to 10knts I use enough cunningham
to take out creases(very little) and medium kicker.
to give maximum power to get out on the wire earlier
winds anything above 10 knts I use max cunningham and
medium kicker the outhaul is in a position where with
max kicker and cunningham the foot doesnt get a crease
along the bottom, when sailing on the correct settings
its to baggy if it gets baggy behind knav and to rounded
up in leach. the boat gets more difficlt to handle.
sorry its a bit vague but it will vary depeding how
old you sails are.
I sail with
the same setting of outhaul for all conditions except
occasionally in very very light I pull it flat.
