Not to take away from Howard Rice's Skills camp, but is there a primer written or a video on sailing the particulars of properly sailing a SCAMP for experienced Dinghy sailors?

I supect that what is being asked is " is there a tuning guide or set of initial setings for a scamp". Most racing classes have these, though 2 boat tuning with a well set up scamp would be better, but this is not alway available especially now with covid.
