Initial Rig Tuning WS42

David and Monica Chandler

I own hull #24. She is cutter rigged. When I bought the boat the mast was noticably leaning forward about 2-3 degrees. Is that right? I have a basic understanding of tuning and always believed the mast should be either square or raked aft to improve windward performance.
What is the best initial set up for this rig?

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!
