Re: [Amel] twin headsails for downwind

Alessandro,We found a big gennaker was better for the Atlantic crossing, as we found that the twin poles only work at a small range of wind angles.They also tend to dip frighteningly close to the sea as the boat rolls. have some spare pop it rivets and the giant pop it rivet gun to reassemble the pole if you break the tip.At one point we had the gennaker up for i think more than 5 days in the trades .
