I have a battenless main and no lazy jacks and I hate it! I can hardly get my sail folded when wind
is over BF3, 4 and with more wind the sail threatens to throw my overboard
on occasion. Lazy jacks are being installed in the next month or so as I had great experience with them on a Baltic
42 and after discussions with the North Sails
expert we decided to go for a fully battened main as well. Surely if we design the lazyjacks with the new sail shape in mind, it should be easy to avoid fouling.
