Had fun with the MPS - now to setup the symetric...
I've used a symetric on a friends racing
41', however I'm not sure if I need his full setup for my more cruising focus.
A few questions then:
My pole has lift
and downhaul attachment points at the very end near the beak - can I use these or is it better to have attachment points made mid-pole for the uphaul/downhaul?
Use of both a brace and guy on windward side? Is this necessary?
ie. Brace to control pole fwd limit; guy to control sail at the clew.
I guess it is safer with a brace as well - prevents pole swinging onto forestay - however is this needed for cruising? Does anyone else use a brace like this?
