Hi Porter,

Could you please explain how you sheet it to the opposite side? I appreciate the knowledge

Scott. That’s exactly what we do re the staysail and the running backstay. Awesome sail that allows pointing quite high, really stabilized the ship. Also adds about a knot in light upwind going when used in conjunction with the Genoa. We occasionally even sheet it to the opposite site allowing for a few extra degrees upwind in light airs and calm seas.


Maupiti (and a trickle of internet)

Excuse the errors.
