    Any Malbec 18 owners out there with insight into the helm balance in light air, up to 8 knots or so? Well built boat! Hoping for improving light air close reaching and windward sailiing.

    If you’ve tried adjusting mast rake already, adjusting the centerboard might help with balancing the helm more to your liking. On a reach we find that opening the slot – moving the jib leads forward and outboard – adds a good bit of speed with other boats.
