CONTENDER RIG TUNING - BLACK ART OR SIMPLE SCIENCE?

Many sailors are mystified by the term tuning. Some may imagine that it is a sort of Black Magic performed instantly by experts such as sailmakers and other so called professionals. However in reality, there is no short cut for anyone and “tuning” usually means small adjustments made over a long period of time to ensure a close working match between mast, sail and helmsman.

SOLO RIG SETUP

A guide to TUNING AND SAILING with your Wavelength sail and rig

The Solo is a relatively simple boat to set up as the rules are quite tight, and most boatspeed differences stem from the ability to “change gear” quickly when racing in variable conditions (which is most of the time). So apart from some measurements to help check your mast and centreboard setup, most of the information here is aimed at helping you get the best from the rig when sailing.
