  • Now let’s look at sail setting.

  • Sails are your engine, accelerator and brake all in one, so having them incorrectly set

  • is a bit like driving a car with an engine that’s badly tuned. Your main control ropes

  • are called sheets, and adjusting these control sheets in or out adjusts the sail setting.

  • You must constantly check and adjust your sails to keep them at the best angle relative

  • to the wind. This is when the sail is not flapping at any point.

  • In the case of a two hander, you should release both sails until they start to flap. When

  • you see this, pull them both back in a little until they stop flapping. This is the optimum

  • position for the sails on that particular course.

  • In the case of the single hander, simply look for the front part of the mainsail to stop

  • flapping.

  • As you alter your course you must repeat this exercise constantly to maintain a good and

  • even airflow across the sail. When you want to sail towards the wind, turn your boat onto

  • the close hauled position and find the edge of the no go zone. Pull the control sheet

  • so the boom is close to the centreline of the boat, and pull the jib in hard if you

  • are sailing a two hander.

  • When close hauled you steer the boat to find the point where the sail starts to flap. Push

  • the tiller slowly and gently towards the boom until the sail flaps, and then pull it away

  • from the boom until it stops flapping. So keep the tiller movements small, and keep

  • probing the edge of the no go zone in small amounts until you are confident that you are

  • on the edge of the no go zone.

  • If sailing a single hander, steer the boat to find the point where the front part of

  • the mainsail just stops flapping.

  • To help you here you might have tell tales. These are small strips normally made of wool,

  • and stuck to both sides of the sail, normally about six inches inside the front edge. You

  • should aim to keep the tell tales streaming evenly on both sides of the sail like this.

  • As you enter the no go zone the tell tale on your side of the sail will lift like this,

  • and as you turn away from the wind too far the outside tell tale will flap.

  • When you are close hauled or beating, this is the most likely sailing angle where you

  • might become overpowered. With the sails pulled in closer to the centreline of the boat there

  • is a large sideways force which will try to tip the boat over. To counter this, when the

  • gust hits ease the mainsheet a little. This will reduce the amount of power in the sail

  • which will reduce the tipping effect of the breeze.

Now let’s look at sail setting.
