I guess it's not surprising I agree with Dave above as he built our main, code 0 and asymmetric
. All of which we use pretty much as he describes, except we will use the code 0 as deep as 170 when we need a sail between the jib
in size and are heading downwind. We used to fly a reefed main off the wind
, but for the last couple of years of cruising now always drop it and just use a head
sail of some form once we are passed about 130.
works great with a tack line lead to each bow. You can then trim it to windward for deep downwind work, and bring it back to the center line as the apparent wind comes forward.
