Why do my 2:1 sheets twist all up in a breeze?
Have sailed 3 out of the last 4 regatta days in a pretty sitff breeze. My 2:1 jib sheets are twisting badly, such that I cant really work the port sheet after 2 races. Got so bad today that the sheet would not ease for tacking! Results in backwinding in a big blow - not good!
I have taken the sheets off and "untwisted" them to make it better, but the problem returns. Have swivels on the blocks on the pendants, maybe this is not good but it should not make much difference?
