How tight the battens?

Steven Pearson <<Steve>>

Don’t forget to monitor your batten tension, I had to turn some
out 3-7 turns after sitting around for a day

Regarding the 30 degree and 15 degree rule, 15 degrees is fine, 1-2 turns past
clicking with resistance. 30 degrees is pretty tight.

Used to be looser root, tighter tip. Now I do them all about the same ( with the
glider completely assembled). Maybe near the root one turn tighter.

The basic idea is to have your battens tight before you launch.
Steve has noted that the sails expand here in the warm Florida sun and he has
had to turn the battens three or four turns each to get them tight after a day
in the heat.
