Rigging Question

Should the leeward rigging slacking or loosen when I'm on a tack? My last boat the rigging never slacked but on my 440 I've noticed that it slacks a lot when I'm sailing around 15 knots or above. I asked my rigger and he said that it should slacken some but I just had an instructor at my 100 Ton class said it probably shouldn't. Sometimes the turnbuckles actually touch.

Re: Rigging Question

Some slack is normal, now if the turnbuckles touch with each other could be a lot, ask a rigger to perform a uppers tune.... Cheers.
