Replying to:Upright or not
This question is for the racers. I have been reading Racing Basics by Mark Johnson in a link from Trailer Sailor Place which was enlightening. In the article he says to always sail a boat as upright as possible. I have been told to always have some tilt on the RL24 (upleg) especially in light airs. Johnson is emphatic about sailing a flat boat. Is this because he is mainly talking about dinghy racing and does some lean help the RL because of its flatter hull profile. I have been told that the RL has less wetted surface when on a lean. Solving this mystery is directly linked to Wed a/n Rum stocks.
