Sag is definitely not an issue as I do not get any lose shrouds even in 25 knots with full sails
. This particular boat
very stiff. This was just testing shrouds tension of course, do not sail overpowered. In low winds when not using gennaker
, use spi halard attached to bow sprit and tension it to get required jib
sag, and seem to work. Speed ticks up in windward & chop & low winds.
