The board is very tight in the white formula Bytes, not sure about the Ovi or Nautivala ones.  But there is no slop in my board so I've never really thought about it I just try to sail flat.  I've tried to achieve the windward heel techniques (as suggested by Mr. Rooster) when looking for height but not sure I've ever made it work!  Jon?

ps.  just got round to getting the latest Y&Y...nice rug!!

I might be sailing it, but it's still sh**e!

Yep yep you should sail the Byte dead flat, it is just the Laser which sails best with a SMALL amount of heel.

Windward heel can work well in certain conditions and is a good tool to have in the tool box.

I have a friend with an Ovi Byte. The board it very very tight because of the hairy gasket they put round the top and bottom of the case. After judicious use of a stanley knife to shave it down a bit the boat is now sailable!
