    get to a point where we are adjusting in full turns The chart you build for your boat may vary slightly on the number of full turns on or off to achieve maximum performance After you have set up the uppers to the correct wind speed sail the boat on both tacks checking the mast side to side and adjusting the lowers according to the wind speed After you have sailed the boat a while you can create a chart of the shroud tensions and the number of turns needed to be put on or taken off the shrouds for each significant change in wind speed Note that in heavy seas you will want to err a little bit on the light side for more power and in flat water you can err a little bit on the tight side We like to set the boat up for the lightest wind speed we expect to see Then if the wind speed changes significantly we adjust our shroud according to our chart in between races Having a base setting using your light medium numbers is a good way to leave the dock each day for the races It is easy to go up and down from there Develop this habit and you will find tuning the rig is not such a mystery but actually rather simple Sail Trim Mainsail Like other boats main trim on the J80 in keyed off at the end of the top batten In light to moderate air we trim the main so that the telltale on the top batten is stalled about 25 of the time As the wind increases the telltale will fly all the time In light to moderate air the back end of the top batten should be parallel to the centreline on

    With greater acceleration the apparent wind angle is changing all the time so that aggresive trimming is required as the boat speed builds and an equally aggressive ease is needed to prevent a stall as the boat slows Over trimming is very slow On a close reach using telltales can help with accurate trimming the luff of the sail should only just curl On a broader reach ease the sheet out to achieve a bigger luff curl You will be surprinsed how far out it can go Tack line As the course opens up from a close reach to broad reach the tack line should be eased On a close reach the tack should be snug to the pole and as low as possible putting the luff of the sail into a flatter shape On a broader reach add power and allow rotation out from behind the main by easing the tack line Easing the tack line adds power but reduces pointing ability When broad reaching in a big blow you may not want to ease the tack line as far as you would in lighter air If your sail does not already have them we recommend fitting telltales 1
