End of my first season helming anything and specifically a Solo so I still have a lot to learn and make horrible mistakes. But when things do go well I feel slower than I should be.
I have a Wavelength mast and weigh around 80kg, there seems to be differing opinions on the weight range of this mast, some suggesting suitable for lightweights only and others suggesting a wide range of weight. Boat is Winder Mk2 composite and everything works as it should.
I spend a lot of time in the boat and in bed for that matter (It does keep me awake at night!) agonising over whether to bite the bullet and buy a d plus with new sail. I have a new sail for the Wavelength but this seems to have made matters worse (perhaps a case of mis-managing expectations).
So cut to the chase - am I too heavy for the wavelength ?and would an expensive new rig make a quantifiable difference? All opinions welcome
Many thanks Brian
