R36 Sail Optimisation

Posted: 30 Aug 2016 - By: Mowzer

Mowzer is just back from three months travels around the French Atlantic coast. Wind mostly 20 knots or lower but with big swells and short seas. During that time (when we've been able to sail!) we've mainly used the 140% headsail (Genoa car track [assuming these are standard on all boats as per design drawings] set at 5 holes showing) and full main but cannot point as high as we would like with this configuration.  What configuration other than cutter do other R36's use and how close to the wind can you get without pinching it? and with what rig tension?

Thanks in anticipation of a good debate.
