Default Sail set up suggestions

Can someone advise me of the proper sail setup. Does this look correct? Did not connect to electronics as yet. Pic on the manual looks similar. Including the manual cover pic and boat as is pics. Thanks Ron

The sails look to be "normal" once you connect them to the servo you will be able to determine if you have to make any tweaks.
Do you have any sailing clubs in your area. If so, it would be great for you contact them. Always good to learn from more experienced
sailors/builders.

Thanks for the info. I'll have to wait until electronics is in. It may sit on a shelf awhile as I have others to sail. One sat for 5 years or more. Ron
