Fin position

Fin position

Post by Mr Norman Man Kei » Tue, 29 Aug 1995 04:00:00

I have been sailing my Vivace 270 for some time but still not good enough
to notice the difference between putting the fin foreward or backward.
You know there are 4 positions for adjustment in the trim box.

Can someone help?

Depends on the fins CE and lift, the sail style and size, your size and
style and the conditions.

I am big and I sail with the straps all back on my 270 and use 5 cam
race sails.

Basically I start with blade and slalom fins back then move them forward
or go to a smaller one if my back foot is having to press too much.
I put my weed fins forward because of their sweep and aft CE.
