Tuning Guides and Techniques

  • Switching to High Aspect Albacore Sails
  • Albacore sailors use one of two distinct types of sails on their boats commonly called either “low aspect” or “high aspect” according to the cut of the jib. While very different in shape and how you set each of these types of sails, both have produced top results in the class for over 20 years.
