    Pointing up wind

    On a weekend sail with some Hobies they sailed way closer too the wind than I could as I had to bare away or stall then had to tack to regain corse again this has happened on two other trips my rig setup is Raked mast , shortened shorouds , rig tension per tuning guide Jib with clue plate this trip set to netural luft and leach tension Rudders are raked and tiller rubber joints replaced with nacra joints Down haul standard tight as I can pull Vang loose little understanding Out hall tight enough to remove wrinkles Boom block hanger standard position , block when close halled is at 45deg pushing back on boom and the mast to full rotation do I move this ??? I think I should be able to stay on the same tack as the Hobies am I sailing wrong or am I setup wrong help or ideas would be good , I am not the best sailer just trying hard and enjoying it

    Trapeze setup

    I am trying to set a trapeze for the first time and am finding it difficult to fit all the parts together in particular the "hound" on the mast seems like there is too many wires for the fitting and it becomes very crowed up there then the situation of the shock cord and how much I am given to work with , would love some one to post a pic of there trapeze set up so I can get a understanding of how to make it work
