The Problem on the 450 with this is that the main is steeling the wind for the Gennaker
Any recommendations ?
What AWA are we talking about ?
& MS, I think on most monohulls the max AWA is around 150, on my L440 it is probably closer to 140. I don't think it is any different on the L450.
Now with the gennaker
, I would typically not raise the mainsail
when sailing long distances above 130/140AWA. Actually I would use the spinnaker
I am sure a longer bowsprit would improve performance a bit with gennaker & mainsail
, but seems rather complicated and pricey to me.
