Thnx B, Now I just gotta learn how to set the sails etc,always learning.Any advice from you guys would be helpful,cheers,
Looks epic, Paul! My input is to make sure you have plenty of peak halyard going when on the wind to give a nice even sail shape and get rid of wrinkles. Once off the wind I ease the peak a bit especially in lighter winds. Take some more videos to keep me motivated. 30 degrees here every day is getting miserable!
No worries Brad,thnx mate.
That smile and laugh says it all Paul : ) a second on the peak halyard... and the jib halyard, its way to loose too. And rig two sheets to your jib, one on either side of the mast leading back to the winch.... right now you can see in the video is blocking the wind from flowing smoothly over the main sail, its actually slowing you down. May i suggest to watch a couple of ' how to sail a Hobie Cat " videos on Youtube, you'll get it in a few minutes, but most importantly keep smiling and have fun!
ThnksB. will do.I have just returned from the boat and have tensioned the forestay some more.These boats make one smile,the gods know I need it.;)
