Help me to select the right rigging for a new Sense 43.

Hi!

I am getting a new Beneteau Sense 43. I don't have a lot of experience, just a couple of years sailing with a Beneteau 40 (Oceanis line).

There are a couple of options for the rigging, and I am not experienced enough to know exactly the advantages and disadvantages of each one.

I will be using this boat around the NYC area, Long Island Sound, and occasionally with trips to Provincetown and later to Fr. Lauderdale. I am not into racing, so extreme efficiency is not a priority.

I have a furling mainsail in the 40, and I like it, so I am planning to choose that for the sense. Now for the headsail, I have the option to get a Code 0 and a self taking jib. What do you guys think? Would that be a good setup?

I will really appreciate your suggestions.

Thank you very much.

Gus

For the mainsail I will go with a furling system.

For the headsail, I could get a 105 genoa with furling system, or a self-taking blade jib plus a gennaker on a furled forward of the headstay.

Thank you very much for the welcome message!
