Topic: storm riding sail
I was wondering if anyone has a storm riding sail that is to be hoisted on the backstay when riding to a sea anchor like the one pictured on page 74 of Adlard Coles' Heavy Weather Sailing book, 13th Ed.?
If so, I'm wondering what the proper dimensions and weight of the Dacron used and your thought about its performance (whether you got it sized appropriately or not, etc.).
I've asked a couple of sailmaker about the right size of this sail for a Contessa 26, but the one's I've contacted don't know.
