Actually, I haven't had very much success rigging a loose footed staysail per the service manual.

When I rigged my staysail per the instructions, even with the side track blocks in their most forward position (to exert more of a downward pull on the leech) the leech is still too loose resulting in the sail shape being 'blown'.

Not sure why this should be the case as the jib/yankee is rigged in essentially the same manner except for the continous line thru the clew block.

Any suggestions? How do others have their loosefooted staysail rigged?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
