  13. Jib Stay Length for 4.3

    Raking  the mast improves the performance and greatly reduces the tendency to pitchpole, but, you must also remove 2-3mm off the rear of the mast step, to allow the mast to rotate, and tuck the rudders under the transom 30mm, to get rid of the weather helm, induced by mast rake. Nobody in our club sails with a standard rig. Hope this helps.
