Gripe

1. The tendancy of a vessel to cope up into the wind on her own when beating into the wind and therefore to carry too much weather-helm.

This is sometimes the effect of the trim of the vessel and can be corrected by adjusting the Ballast.

It is more oftin the effect of an unbalanced Hull, a short run Aft or too bluff a Bow and even unbalnced riging can all contribute - in these cases there is little that can be done to counter Gripe
