Re: Sailing a Baba 30

I'd say it depends on general wind conditions in your sailing area. For offshore passage making and Tradewind sailing in the islands, the yankee and staysail are ideal. If you sail mainly where the winds are light a good portion of the time, maybe you're better off with the big genoa.

Or, you could keep the cutter rig and buy an asym.
