Re: 135 genoa vs 155 genoa

I rarely fly mine. Pointing is a good 5-10 degrees worse, and it's actually worse in light air as it's a fairly heavy sail so it just hangs there.
If I had one in a lighter cloth (a drifter I guess) then it might be more useful, but my 155 is designed for stronger winds and a full crew to help keep her flat. I don't have that luxury.
