What is the maximum power advantage that can be added to the factory cunningham setup? i have heard 2 to 1 but have not been able to find this in the rules. I currently have the factory stock USA 357, single block attached to the mast below the tack tick but would like to improve this within the rules.

What is the factory setup? I seem to have only a hook on a line. On the mast between the gooseneck and vang is a small block and cam cleat. We have had light air so far and I have been able to go with the hook in the grommet and the line fed through the block to the cleat. This is only a 1 to 1 purchase. Should I be running it differently or am I missing some hardware?

That's the factory setup but in any kind of breeze if I have a small crew up there they sometimes can't get wrinkles out of the luff. I thought it might make sense to make their job a little easier.

I'm using a "home-made" 4:1 purchase system which works fine. Not sure whether it is class legal, but not an issue as I only do handicap racing.
