Re: Furling a Staysail to a Storm Jib Size
I had reefing genoas on a couple of previous boats (note, genoas, not stays'ls), and found them to be a big PITA to use... never found a satisfactory means of dealing with the bunt. Another factor was that the heavy clew ring and patch exacerbated any tendency for the leach to flutter.
All in all, I abandoned this approach despite its apparent attractions.
