Re: Mostly singlehanded...what lines should I run aft?

outbound--if i shaped my mainsail, i wouldnt gain any boat speed...is a brick...i ihave a nicely baggy , slightly too small main sail which is fully battened. my mizzen is super bag, and jib is ok. boat sails and doesnt do bad --i dont worry about trimming as she is slow anyway--i get 3 whole kts in a 6 kt breeze......mebbe....downhill...
