Re: What is considered a normal degree of heeling?

Chad;

My W27 doesn't handle well with only head or main up.. Best to have a smaller jib and reefed main IF you're sstill working out the kinks. Full main and an 85%'er up front and I can make near 5kn w/o heeling more than 5 +/-degrees. With a 110% yankee hoisted, the speed goes up without too much heel. I, as well as my W27, like to stay on our feet!

Best,
Paul
