Second option is with the bulb C.G on the C.B, need to move the ballast to find right boat balance again but I have never tried it, as the offset C.G seems as perfect to me.

This is the first day I had the boat in the water getting to know sailing in sheltered alcove her with one hand on the camera other on the sticks & sail tuning not as good as it could be. Was the only place I could take vid because once she got her head into the wind outside the cove .. she was gone ! had no chance to track her with my camera.

This vid probably the best indication of light wind performance, I donít know what type of ballast set-up Luca had here but nose looks just little more down in the water and sail tuning is spot-on.

Luca won 2012 Italian IOM championship with Carving so itís proven boat. One manís opinion here but I believe itís world class winning IOM.

Cheers Alan
