How to tune the genoa

The genoa shape is determined by:
1. The fullness of the sail
2. The genoa draft position
3. The twist of the genoa.

Basic trimming variables:
4. Genoa sheet tension
5. Genoa sheet traveller position
6. Forestay tension
7. The genoa luff (genoa halyard) tension

The genoa sheet is the most used trimming
device. The  sheet  primarily  determines the
sail's  angle to the boat's  centreline, but also
affects sail depth and twist.

NB! The closer you sheet the sails to the
centreline the higher the boat is able to
point. Remember also that even if a trim
device  has a main function, it will  also
affect  the other factors that determine
the shape of the sail
