Log: With the new jib installed, we headed off for a test ride, a bit concerned that it is considerably smaller than the 125% Genoa we have been using to date. The new jib is much higher cut and probably 100% or perhaps a little less. A couple of observations:
- The higher cut sail works well with the staysail – using the two sails provides some more flexibility.
- The smaller headsail is considerably much easier to take through the gap between the forestay and the inner stay.
- It seems like we can point measurably higher.
So, all in, we are pretty pleased with the new sail.
