Mast Rake by Stu Walker
I believe that for sailing to windward mast rake (aft) should be as great as possible consistent with sheeting the mainsail and the jib. As in strong winds the rake must be reduced - to permit sheeting the flattened main on a bent mast and tensioning the jibstay - the maximum rake should be set for light air. Select a rake that causes the mainsh  ...      Posted on 18/01/2005 by Matias Collins, read by 1126 Comments 1

The effect of shroud car position
The tighter the uppers the less the effect - on mast bend - of moving or tensioning the lowers - and vice versa. When the uppers are eased (400lbs seems ideal for all conditions) slight changes in the position or tension of the lowers make big changes in the mast bend.     To induce lateral mast sag (mid-mast sagging to leeward) and increa  ...      Posted on 15/11/2004 by Matias Collins, read by 1044 Comments 0

Comments at article: Main Sheet Adjustment by Stu Walker
Roman Koch responds to my commentary:   Unfortunately we never check the rake; the tension measurement is not possible, because we use forestay and shrouds made from rodrigg.   I also don`t know the rake, because we fixed it the first time sailing our boat with the "Schümann-dates" and have only a second position for very light winds w  ...      Posted on 10/11/2004 by Matias Collins, read by 1172 Comments 0

Soling Basics by Stuart Walker
Jan Linge designed and built the first Soling in 1964. Three years later in the second of two trials, its remarkable range of performance, easily controllable in a gale, responsive in a drifter, resulted in its selection as the IYRU's Three-Man Keelboat. Sixty boats were built in 1967, 300 in 1968, and, with the impetus of Olympic selection,  ...      Posted on 01/01/2001 by Stuart Walker, read by 2013 Comments 0
