Nice 😉 But I don’t get it 100%…

First, you say: Boom up, Mast foot to the back.
Then Boom down and Mast foot to front until it’s perfect…

BUT: Do I move boom down and foot front in steps at the same time? How to decide which of both to move were? 😉

For example, can I put the boom to a comfortable position, where I can hook in/out good and just move the mast foot until I am happy? How can I find the perfect trim?

Sorry, I need more detail 😉

Boy those boards can move if you get it right! I remember Rodney Pattisson, double Olympic gold medallist in sailing, saying “everything on the boat should be adjustable” which I guess is the point you’re making here. Excellent video

Arnaud Marie says:

I agree about the boom heigh and mast foot position but for my case, if I’m trying to make it flying (boom higher and/or mast foot back), my front foot go out from the front strap. Not enough pressure on my front leg. How can I find a solution ? Thank you.
