Hehe… I knew I would get the “not round here mate – they are muck-spreading in the fields” type of reply..

Anyway – this year I have my new shiny and bloomin expensive jib tracks to try out. We don’t point well and we’ve tried raking the mast, tensioning the rig (bought a gauge), maxing out on kicker tension (did the cascade thing)…

So this is it – either the tracks work or I accept that either I’m no use at racing or I need to buy a new boat – and that ain’t gonna happen. So the only thing left is to take a hint from the Olymipic training regime – visulisation!!

Ignore the agricultural and industrial distractions, face the southwest, breath deeply, fix the image of W9327 in your mind – jib tracks glinting in the sun and dedicate a prayer to the wind gods to help me point higher……
