Tightening or tensioning the backstay adjuster increases headstay tension for sailing upwind and improves pointing ability.  Loosening or softening the backstay adjuster for downwind or off the wind sailing reduces weather helm and makes for a more powerful genoa. Backstay adjusters come in many configurations of block & tackle, mechanical or hydraulic adjusters.  The right application for your boat depends on the size and type of boat as well as the type of sailing you do.  We represent all the major manufacturers, please call for a free consultation.
