Following a discussion on the Facebook group, we’d like to start compiling a reference guide for setting up your 505.  Of course, with a wide variety of hulls, masts, sails and fittings, we’re only making a start for now.  The plan is that, over time, we collect together the advice given on specific queries, and so build a reference that will become increasingly useful.  So – if you ask a question and get some useful info from those who know, then get it put on here!

Class rules, including measurement, can be found on the International 505 website here.

First question was about positioning the mast foot when rebuilding the step.
