Fin/Mast Positions for Footstraps

Fin/Mast Positions for Footstraps

Post by Thomas G. Reidenbau » Thu, 07 Sep 1995 04:00:00

        If there's EVER any East Coast wind when I have time to sail
(probably at Dewey Beach), I'll be trying for the footstraps on a Bic
Veloce 328 with an Aerotech 5.5 Aero-Lite 2-cam sail and the stock 14.5"
G10 fin.  I'm 6'-0" 170 lbs.

        I normally set the mast midway in the mast track and the fin all
the way back, for no particular reason.  I've got the footstraps forward
so I don't have to go back so far to get to them, but I haven't had the
wind to get there yet.  When I do, where should I set the mast and fin,
and what are the general differences for their various positions?
