ps.. and this works for me no matter if I am using large or small fins in the board.
Yeah, you are right Dave, the new Tushy lightning seems to be a very difficult sail to to trim right. All my problems started when I bought this sail a few weeks ago, and I just cant get it set comfortably, I've moved my harness lines, bought a new boom and 100 perc. carbon mast, but it still wont rig right.
I think I will go back to Severnes!
