Re: Recommended headsail inventory

Our heavy weather headsail is a 10.5 oz 105% yankee cut sail.

It is good to around 50 knots—then the Jordan Drogue.

Hi folks we're in the process of entirely refitting our Sm2K and are getting close to ordering sails. 

Question: what is the standard (or alternately, recommended) headsail inventory for an SM2K? 158% genoa, matching asymmetric spinnaker/gennaker, balloner, and possibly a smaller 90% jib for heavy weather sailing is what we're thinking.
