Re: 135 genoa vs 155 genoa

This is a very light wind area in the summer and I have always regarded a 150 as the working jib. It's called the "number one" for good reason.

Racers around here have at least two 150's - a light & a heavy. The light one is for less than 10 knots, the heavy for up to 15-18 and then they start changing down.

People with furlers seem to settle on 135's generally.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
