I went out on freestyle gear, but it was a marginal slog. So, before giving up, I rigged the NCX and the Falcon. I used 1 cm less downhaul, 1 cm less outhaul, tightend up the battens, and moved the mast base back 1 cm. Bingo! Off-we-went. I finally got brave and put the back foot in the strap and was 2 for 2 on tacks today. The forces on the fin are amazing. I am glad I got a nice one! It felt good to mow some lawn.
