Hei Mark, yes I know what you mean and I was not referring while anchoring
. But anyway I will love those sounds
as compared to the traffic noise
I have hear in Nairobi in front of my windows.
What I meant is the easy principle of reefing/furling the jibs and de-powering/ powering the foils.
This will be easily possible to be done by my wife. In a larger boat she has just not the physical strength to deal with all that. And while on nigh watch I would need much less to worry about the right amount of canvas
up in the wind.
Therefore for me this would be a perfect cruisers rig if all works out as stated by Chris. And I think it does, as Chris has a huge amount of experience and if you read a bit more in deep about the experience of owners of his designs I was not able to find a negative comment about his boats. I'm sure this system is well thought and it will work.
