Mast foot pressure?
I was out sailing for the first time this year on saturday. Using a carve 144 and 7.5m thunderbird 3 it was enough to get planing quite nicely, however I was really struggling to get into the footstraps once planing or keep the board flat to get on the plane in the first place as I was sinking the back of the board.
Is this down to not having enough power or not enough mast foot pressure? I'm quite a tall sailor (6'7" & 100kg's) and it always seems that my weight is being transfered horizontally through the harness lines rather than vertically, especially if with the smaller sails.
Any suggestions how I can do something differently or change my setup?
