Shroud Tension & Board Angle: Crucial Setups to Go Fast

North Sails MC Scow experts Allan Terhune and Eric Doyle (AKA ‘the man who can always make fast sails faster’) have developed a new tuning guide for the MC Scow class. After spending days training and sail testing in Lake Eustis, North announced two new sails: the new MC Magnum and the MC Rocket. The lessons learned while optimizing the sails and boat setup are now shared in the new tuning guide.

“Among many updates, we have added information on shroud tension and board angle which are crucial setups to make the boat faster. Our goal is to make it easier for everyone to be up-to-speed as fast as possible. See you at the Midwinters!” — Allan Terhune.

North Sails is continually developing and improving our products and services. Helping you sail faster is not just our goal; it is our obsession.
