Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Upwind with staysail

Heinz Stutenbaeumer

Hi Paul 
I got a second rig behind my fore sail. 
I  use it with a staysail or a storm sail in strong winds. I can easy  remove the rig in normal weather. This way I don't need to roll in  the Genoa completely when I make a turn. 
The former owner told me he also used it to go higher up in the wind.

An Amel-owner told me that using the "Trinkette", or staysail, on a SM gains 5-6 degrees of upwind performance.  Can anyone verify this claim?
