Naah! This is all wrong. The best way to rig any sail is, to sit back with a drink and a tasty snack and have one’s butler to do it.

Hayden Mossop says:

i always wondered what the cup did no wonder my riggin was shit

David Castle says:

The sail will tell you how long the boom has to be right?

Looking at tips after being stranded in F7 winds today. I didnt realise that my poor downhaul and outhaul settings effected the controlability of my sail soo much. cheers

TheFireblade1000RR says:

I wish you would elaborate more on why doing certain things, like why do you expand the boom exentions, why not leave it as is, when using the same sail. Also how much tension on teh ropes and so on.

raymanuva says:

It all depends on the manufacturer and a size of the sail also (camber/non camber)
But the procedure i ussualy.

Open camber pockets
Insert Mast
Downhaul to the point where the sail is streightenned.
Max outhaul
Puch cambers in, close pockets.
Downhaul at max
