  1. It’s tough to get the best boat speed using a spinnaker on this heading but it is fun sailing.

    You might consider keeping the forward end of the pole close to the center line of the hull.

    A bit lower heading might give you better speed.  I am going to stay silent on the position

    of the keels because I don’t have any experience with the double keels…. but you do want to

    minimize the rudder’s resistance in relatively light air, and in your case rudders… but this is

    about the wind speed where the rudder doesn’t make as big a difference.  t
