There is still a small chance I might be able to break away next fall for a little crossing to the Caribbean
, and I'm thinking through what I would need to do to my boat to do it.
I have no downwind sails
, which has long been a hole in my sail inventory. I did install a track on my mast
for a spin pole.
So for that long downwind leg in the trades, what's the best solution? I have read much good about the Twizzle rig, but recently I have been reading more and more negative comments. I once considered a Parasailor, but was horrified at the cost. But now I see that they come up on the market used from time to time -- maybe I could think again about it.
And I guess I'm going to need something like a Code 0 in any case.
What do you guys think?
