Replying to:RL28 unequal performance on opposite tacks
Just got the first few races in the new tub under my belt with mixed results and plenty of work still to do. My main concern is an alarming difference in performance on opposite tacks when close hauled especially. On one tack the boat is lively and responsive, powers up well and I'm able to resist the tendency to round up. Speed and height seem good. On the other tack it's like a different boat. Slow and sluggish, unable to resist even the slightest tendency to round up and unable to point. Assuming the rig is central and perpendicular to the beam, which I think it is but will check, I can only think it's either a rudder or more likely a keel problem. Anyone else experienced similar issues ?
