So, you are having troubles with low wind, or your sailboat nose dives while there is stronger wind? Fear not, let us dive in into some basics for all of you trying to get better in every regatta.

For trim & K2 IOM optimization in light wind conditions, put sail boom in the center, jib should go on 55 mm from centerline of the mast to centerline of the boom, mainsail leech should be on 45 mm from centerline and leech from jib should be on 80 mm from the centerline. We tend to have nice “belly” in our sails in the light wind conditions to put it more in pictures with words so you can get where we aim better. What can also help is to try and catch wind which blows little bit above, higher from surface. To do that, adjust your sails on higher positioning (jib can move up on mast holes) and use the tip of your main sail so that it captures the winds which blow easily there but not close to the surface of the water.

Here are some more tips for stronger wind conditions: try and observe the regatta (race) field in wide specter (area) to see where the strong gust will hit first. Before it hits your K2 you must speed up with the sailboat and then enter into strong gust (wind) area. That way, K2 will nosedive minimally or almost nothing and you will accelerate like never before. Other things which can help is tilting the rigs more backwards, to the stern, or/and moving jib pivot upfront, forward. Try and play with those options, but the key is to speed up as much as possible before the strong wind gust hits you. Hope our guidelines will be helpful as they work great for us and others in those situations, but you will have to train little bit of course in order to execute it like a true RC pro sailor! Anyway, we will have more updates for all of our items soon as we are constantly doing R&D, so we appreciate your feedback.

Cheers
