farr 38

hi boris i have only owned this yacht for two seasons and i think i need to re orginise the deck layout and am thinking i need to get some new sails as mine are very old this boat is in very good order but has never really been raced so we are not to sure about the direction we will take have been playing with mainsheet and headsail settings and back stay it seems that these boats are very sensitive and small adjustments can make a big diff either way had the best race ever last weekend am wondering about inner tracks main sheet tweekers etc cheers murray
