Hi,

I cant help you directly, but...

There is new race forum opened on the www.severnesails.com
Register a ask the question again there...Jesper will surely respond to it.
He post from time to time here as well, but if you want your answer sooner, then severne webpage will definetelly be better.

PS: I do not think there is any exact answer to your question....I guess, you rig the sail and look how t rotates and then you will se if you need the spacers at all...try to post there and you will here from them.

Ciao Michal.

rigg it to final trim and check tension at the cams by shifting each by hand and back without shifting whole sail. Most tension should be at the bottom cam and less at the top cam. If you have not enough tension add spacer(s). Play that game until you have on all cams enough tension. Tension is to low if cams are shifting by itself at the beach or if you are on water and open the sail in stronger winds and some cams shift by itself.
