Re: Upwind with staysail

Alan Leslie

Whether you can oint higher to the wind will depend largely on where the sail is sheeted. If you have a track inboard of the standing rigging then it is possible that you can point higher. If in the case of our trinquette it is sheeted to the rail, then no.
We use the trinquette in heavy weather, when close to the wind is neither comfortable nor necessary / possible, and when reaching with the genoa.
