boat balance

Being new to the Flying Scot, I was wondering about crew position fore and aft. Is there a prescribed, better placement of the skipper and crew when going upwind? Does it vary much when sailing with 3? Does the most forward position vary in choppy(1 to 2 ft waves) conditions?

I'd suggest two information sources: An FSSA publication named "The Best of Scots n' Water" and the various tuning guides published free on the websites of various sailmakers. "The Best of Scots n' Water" includes discussions and advice on your crew positioning question in various conditions plus a lot more that I, a new Scot owner, have found helpful. And you can easily find the sailmaker's tuning guides by Googling search terms like "North sails Flying Scot" and "Gus Sails Flying Scot" etc., etc. Hope this helps! - Jim Locke - FS 4592 - Montgomery, Alabama
