Hi could someone help me distinguish the difference between
140% #1 Heavy genoa
140% #2 genoa
They both weigh the same, 45lbs, but I have to make the decision which genoa to bring with me on a plane when i flyback to the boat. I am gonna be doing some upwind singlehanding
and would like to bring the easiest genoa to tack with and avoid tangling in the mast
and the inner forestay.
I've been using 100% #3 but I can't point as good.
I've also used 140% #1 Heavy genoa, that allows me to point great, but its a nightmare to tack singlehanding
, and impossible to tack when removable inner forestay is set so i brought that one back home.
Among the sails
inhereted from the PO (hard core
racer) are following genoas. These are the bag markings but I think the sails
might have been mixed up so I ordered them by weight which I think fits the numbering and the % ovelap. If anyone has a suggestion on how to identify them I would appreciate it.
150% #1H total weight 50lbs
140% #1H total weight 45lbs
140% #2 total weight 45lbs
130% #2 total weight 40lbs
150% #1L total weight 30lbs
130% #1L total weight 25lbs
All of them can be furled up.
They are not the best cruising sails but I don't have the budget
for a nice cruising genoa and untill I do I have to get by with waht I have.
