Getting your mast tuned is a beautiful thing. Check out the North Sails Tuning Guides at http://www.northsails.dk/no/TuningGuides.asp - If your class isn't there, look at some for general information such as tips for getting your mast "in column" and setting mast rake (in the guide for the Catalina 22).
