Re: Heavy Weather Foresail

I'm glad I have an inner forestay with a staysail....big genoas even with rope or foam luffs have a bad shape when furled......they look ok from the cockpit, but if you look at them from in front of the boat, (ie on another boat looking back) they always look terrible.

Another problem is the tremendous strain that is put on the leech and the foot when furled going to windward with tight sheets, that strain can destroy your leech shape in time.

Cheers
