Topic: Leading sheets for large headsails
Hey, I think this is my first post in the forum, but I've been lurking for a bit. Lots of great info here, thanks.
I recently purchased a Contessa 26 that has what I believe to be something like a 150% genoa. I've tried flying it with the sheets led both inboard and outboard of the shrouds, but haven't really come to a conclusion as to which is more optimal. It seems that with sheets outboard of the shrouds, I can more efficiently trim the genoa but dousing is a lot more work.
What say you, forum?
