You could be right Jacques. After all, it was the first time I was rigging that boat. I was not at home on her like on my Piper! ;)
Next time I should make it better.
I'll see. :)

I will surely see how it sails in some more wind the next time I put her in the water. I will roll the sail some bit on the boom (rolling boom) if needed but I may get a brand new main for next season if it really sails bad. :)
I also want to find or make myself a reefing claw.

So far I only sailed the boat once and in light wind. The boat was moving along fine upwind. I will simply get a new main if needed.

Is that boom angle so bad?... :|

I think so. There is still some life in them and I don't race! ;)

Yes Jacques! I was pleased by the way it moves in almost no wind at all! Now I will have to remember that she is a dinghy when the wind will pump up! ;)

(There is a short video just up your last post)
