A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
That was a nice day, with light wind.
Some problems made us start late, and we ended to a small island, not as far as we wanted to go first, where we had an unhealthy lunch.
However, I think I do not sail the boat properly. Look at these angles! I take care of the jib pennons, but the double mainsheet that I put on may be a mistake, the sail is not pull backward and creates a big pocket.
Ah! And the sailing time includes the lunch break, of course...
Other things which have help me point :
1. A downhaul on the main to get the wrinkles out
2. Pull really hard on the gaff halyard (See little Cat, Roger uses a 2:1 on the gaff)
3. Use a barber haul or tweeker to pull the head sail sheeting point inboard. See Little Cat blog again.
I use a Laser vang block with another block and a hook to tweek the sheet positions. Also don't point too high as slightly off will give a better VMG.
