weatherhelm

Post by stuart »

Hi I have finally got my Dockrell 22 into a good condition, and am now sailing it, it does have a considerable tendency to turn into the wind - weatherhelm. Does anyone know how to remedy this or is it something that we need to live with.
I am thinking of 2 remedies 1) I know my Genoa is worn ou t- could this be the issue. 2) Someone suggested that building a Skegg just before the rudder might help - Letting the main traveller out does help but the problem still persists, any help would be appreciated.
I Have a dockrell 22, with a swing keel, unfortunately the keel is stuck in the up position, does anyone have any advice on how too fix thi9s ?
