Here is the first of 9 segments of the Boat Setup and Tuning session Macca & Fergie put on at the Racine Cat Champs this year hosted by CRAW.

It covers the video introduction and spinnaker discussion. Other segments cover jib, mast rake, mast rotation, trap lines, boards, main sheet and trapping, jibing and tacking.

Itís Nacra Infusion specific, but most tips apply to any modern cat. For example, I implemented the first spinnaker tip on my Blade and it works well to keep the kite sheet from going everywhere.

Please subscribe to receive future updates.

Nice! I never thought of using the tack line as a source to move the halyard ring on the trampoline. Mmmm...

Thanks, I'll post more as the come off the production line. I originally produced them as a single DVD, so I have to re-edit them a little and convert for the web.

Boat Setup & Tuning

Sorry, the audio is a little harder to make out near the end. Too many people talking.

Enjoyable watching them work with the hardware. It's the "ain't-it-cranky-hey-they-have-to-work-with-that-stuff-too!" moments, if you know what I mean...
