Re: Over sized Genoa

Have you measured the sail against standard spec data .
I’m guessing you are using the masthead spinnaker halyard to hoist the sail.

Re: gennoa V jib

Re: Yacht advice

It also depends on their gear. Based on the car of choice (assumptions) id guess they have some light weight gear, and if youre cooking off the boat, how much gear do you really need for an overnight stay? Enough room to sleep, a few sleeping bags, boom tarp, esky/fridge. That should really be achi...
