Weight effect -
We had an interesting discussion (led by Hans Fogh) at the 2009 Worlds. The major consideration was Roman Koch`s speed - in almost all conditions. And not just to windward (and certainly not on a reach which we never do anymore and where weight has its greatest effect). He is fast downwind - in smooth water and in waves - but (I think) part  ...      Posted on 06/11/2009 by Stuart Walker, read by 1606 Comments 2

Excessively Full Main with Mainsheet Two-Blocked at the Set Rake
Problem - I realized after the first race of the North Americans that my new Halsey main was fuller than my previous ones - and that using it in the usual manner and with the usual rig trim, I was slow (5-9-8-10 in the first four races). I recognized that this main (at the usual mast bend) was fuller than my previous mains with its dr  ...      Posted on 22/09/2005 by Stuart Walker, read by 1454 Comments 1
