sunfish gooseneck adjustment [video]

this is a bit detailed, but a good introduction to the gooseneck setting for your Sunfish sail.  the presentation is given by Paul-Jon Patin from a Starboard Passage Clinic (in 2008).  Starboard Passage has some great tips on rigging your Sunfish, and more rigging information can be found at my sunfish rigging guide post here.

here is how I’ve marked my lower boom with 1-inch increments so I can quickly see my setting.

    I know the feeling we’ve just completed the build of a new garage and 2 story extension, phase 2 is taking out some interior walls in the old house (sadly proper brick supporting walls, not stud) – all gets in the way of sailing

      Max, yeah it has really gotten in the way of sailing. But my window of good building days is quickly closing – I’ve got to get the barn done ASAP!
