Hey girls and guys! 

Just got my hands on Jubilon, a j92 from 2002. It’s in great condition and I’m very happy.

I wanna know if someone has any good trim guide, ive gone thru the group, but a lot of broken links and perhaps i missed some things.

We will mainly race with the jib. 
I found the ullman sails guide but wanna know if anyone has something more in depth.

Did  anyone develop a quick trim guide for the j/92?

Ive put together what I found already (some points are not j92 specific). Somethings might be waaaay off so feel free to change and comment: Aslo, lets assume the rig is  perfectly trimmed. 


Halyard: Gradually tighten the halyard from underwear wrinkles (from 0kn) up to full hoist (around 15-16kn)
Spreader reference: ?
Jib traveler: What would a good base position be?

Traveler: 50% windward gradually come down to center
Boom aft/ridge: 5-10cm to windward
0-4kt Open 
4-14kt top TT visible 25-50%
14kt: top TT visible 100%
Backstay: I know this is really important for pointing but how much should I put it on?
Wang: no need
Cunningham: 5kt gradually put it on for speed rather than power
Outhaule: 100% on regardless of wind (apparently comes from guys on Northsails)

I come from symmetrical so I have plenty to learn here
Tack: tight 
Luff: ?

Traveler: in leeward 
Wang: Top batten parallel with boom
Outhaul: On

Broad Reaching/downwind
Tack: off up to 1m?  Keep vertical or to windward
Luff: ?

Traveler: Leeward
Wang: top betten parallel with boom
Outhaul: off 
Haleyard: underwear wrinkles (1-3cm)

Yepp - best is to get out there and to find the balance but I’d like to kick start it :).

Very best
