I'm new to sailing and still working to figure it all out.  Is there a optimal heeling angle of the 415 or is it as much as you can take?  I have a 2014 Hanse 415. thanks

Hi Joey,
Yes there is an optimal heel angle. Basically, the more you heel, the less efficient the hull becomes and the more sideways slip you get in the water. Not to mention the decreased comfort factor.
I found that it was all a matter of feel in the helm etc that came with getting used to the boat. If water is reaching the toe rail a reef is overdue. You'll generally find that the boat doesn't need to sail in its ear to get the best performance.

Yes, there is an optimum amount and then it becomes too much. I'm guessing but I would say it would be similar to the 400 which I've found to be around 15-20 degrees. This would be why in light wind you put crew on the leeward side to create some heel.

Hey Steve,
Sounds like I have to get used to getting the sides of my boat wet!  Smile
Looking forward to getting out this weekend and give it a go!!

Thanks
Joe
