Staysail on an OI41 sloop.

Did my first test sail a couple of days ago on Corpus Christi Bay. Flew the staysail loose footed and sheeted just forward of the aft lower shrouds. Both the Yankee cut genny and staysail are on roller furlers.

Only got 30 miles of testing done but am pleased with initial run.

Still up in the air on additional winch locale.
