Boat Setup

As a general guide with the Pinbax sails, we use:

0-5 knots
Upwind
Tight outhaul, kicker off, no downhaul and no boom tension/cunningham, jib relaxed 25mm
Downwind
Loose outhaul, kicker to stop boom rising, no downhaul
5-12 knots
Looser outhaul till your at max power, no downhaul, some kicker upwind and enough to control boom downwind
12-25 knots
As your overpowered increase outhaul tension, kicker tight upwind and tightish downwind, ease at mark roundings, mainsail luff tight.
25+ knots
Everything as tight as possible, kicker off for mark roundings and gybes.
