    Delightful's First 'Chute and Flying Sails Race

    way over trimmed! And I would recommend moving the car as far back on the track as possible... Also, make sure you can adjust the tack line; closer to the deck the closer to the wind. We fly our tack above the bow pulpit going down wind, 120 degrees or greater :egrin: love the pattern! and...
