We finally got the mast up, put the fore stay into the fitting and pinned it then pulled back on the trapeze wires and adjusted the side stays to get some rig tension.We sailed our first club race won by 15 minutes against 3 Mosquitos but had some weather helm. Does this mean our mast rake is wrong our is there another way of correcting this? The fore stay was set as short as it would go. How much rig tension should there be?

Usual cause of weather helm is rudders trailing, check whilst on the trailer by pushing the bottom of the rudder rearwards, the leading edge of the rudder should never be behind the line through the pintles.
