I do not have much rake, my mast is fairly straight.
I have a quantum sail and a Dacron old sail, both leave the boom fairly low.
How much differenceDoes it make to have the Mainsail clew a foot or so higher or lower? Does it make that much difference?
My boom is near horizontal fully sheeted. I have a boomkicker that at rest is just above horizontal.
You need a sailmaker visit. Check your spinnaker and the main. Maybe your hoist isn’t up all the way? Do you have a stopper slug at the white band? Maybe it slipped down? A clue to this would be a lot of wrinkles in the luff down low.
My sails seem to be going all the way up they look fine by visual inspection and they reach the top of the mast. I had the feeling my sails were cut with a lower clew, I just wondered if this was normal on all Olsons…
What is a “stopper slug at the white band”?
