Making sure your existing controls work effectively and knowing how to use them would seem to make more sense? No point f(*&ing about with rake and switching rigs when your not even getting the full range out of the existing setup is there.

Yep- about then, had enough for one day. I struggled to get off the beach on the smallest kit I had- 4.4m wave sail and a small ironing board suitable for Oompa Loompa sleeves... then changed up to my 'other woman'- a really special board- with a it more sail. Got off the beach fine, but as soon as I was in the main gusts I got absolutely annihilated! All good fun... No really it was, I will try convincing myself of this....

Plenty of bits being offered, even a brand new small sail in one add, although some are a few months old, and I guess the Whitfriars boat is the first one.

That is the boat which has been stomping on me - dunno why he is selling. No price on the ad. Apart from the cracked stb wing, it is in pretty good nick.
