Adjustment interactions

Does anyone know of a chart that would point out any interactions between adjustments? Things like- if you adjust the backstay you have to re-check sail twist- that sort of thing. I think I’ve got it figured, but I want to make sure I haven’t missed anything. If you don’t know of any chart maybe you could just post your observations here.

Check here:

Or try a search on Bob Sterne’s tuning cycle. :slight_smile:

Here is the cycle as I see it.

set forestay length
set backstay tension
set boom vang to adjust main twist
set main halyard tension
set mainsail foot tension
set mainsail sheet
set jib halyard tension
set jib foot tension
set jib sheet
set jib boom topping lift to adjust jib twist

Go sailing.

If weather helm, lengthen forestay. If lee helm shorten forestay.
