My first sail (and V-32 rigging questions) ...

Some pics my first RC sailboat on my first RC sail :D.

I used to sail dinghies years ago and very rusty, but managed to get it back safely. Great fun! I was clueless as to rigging adjustments (i.e. shroud/forestay taughtness, sail shape, vang, etc), so just winged it for now. Any suggestions most welcomed.

I think this is one of the most helpful Victoria sites http://www.okanaganmodelsailboat.org/Step-by-Step.html and there's also the AMYA Victoria site.

Thanks for the link, I'll have a look and see what crosses over to the V-32.

Thanks! Got the info through here, though in a round about way (I would have thought the class web page would have some in-depth sail setup/tuning steps ;) ).

It linked to the Yahoo V-32 group, which in turn pointed me towards a Soling setup document (sail setup is said to be similar):

I'm going to go through these after work tonight and try it out tomorrow!

My wife got that and other great shots. I'm thinking I need to crop it to just the two "wingman" birds and the boat, and make it my avatar.
