Anyone have, or know where I can find, a copy of Guy Cribb's Cribb Sheet? I hear of it from time-to-time in various articles. I am curious as to what this sorcery is all about. It's not available on his website anymore. Are there any pdfs or scans floating about?

I don't think another person's Cribb Sheet "you need to go to
guycribb.com and order yourself a Cribb Sheet" would do you any good.

Same as you would need your own personal symbol from Riley Martin for it to be of any use to you. RIP Riley.

Sounds like the sheet is a piece of line, like in yachting a piece of rope is called a sheet.

From memory the 'Cribb sheet' was a guide to basic setup particularly around harness lines, it was printed on waterproof paper with the idea you could take it with you when you went sailing - the same basic concepts were in a Windsurf magazine article or two.

In a nutshell, it suggests using a piece of elastic to determine a 1/3 of the distance between the mast and the clew - this is your rear harness line position

might be a bit outdated now and at best is a general start point

another (more complete) guide is here - https://boards.co.uk/how-to/windwise-winter-mot-simon-bornhoft.html

Cool, I like the hand width apart tip. But with the forward/back adjustment, no sorcery for me, I'm still gonna stick with the old school method...move the harness lines closer to the hand that's working too hard.

I need to move my lines if the wind changes or I re tune my sail. Maybe I need a Cribb Sheet or a symbol.

The elastic line, with 1/3 way mark, has never been where I settled on lines.
The both sides of the sheet, have guides and suggestions for Fin placement, mast track etc. useful as a guide ,
Most have probably sorted this out already
