    Hi,

    I am new to Wafarers and I have recently bought W7786 (built around 1984). From the colour scheme and condition, the sails are the original ones so I have bought some new cruising sails from Rooster. I expected to get some kind of tuning sheet but there was nothing.

    Can anyone give me some advice on rig tention, mast rake etc.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    A good starting point is the wayfarer book (if you can get one) or on the web the wayfarer racing notes: see

    http://www.sailtoronto.com/racetraining/wayfarer_racing.pdf

    You will also find a wealth of information at:

    http://www.wayfarer-international.org/WIT/WITindex2.html

    after that, there are lots of helpful folk who will answer specific questions on this forum.
