Why main alone? Cause I'm a glutton for weather helm
I brought the jib
but decided against it for several reasons. 1) we were making good progress, 2) I didn't want to overstress the (untested by me) rig or my neophyte crew, 3) It was blowing good and it had a squally look out.
It was ever so tempting though cause we could have dropped in and done much better surfing. Still a fun ride cause the boat really moves and is mine.
In hindsight it may have been an easier ride with just the big genoa
alone. Just not as fast.
