Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

Wolf:
I would not sail any boat beyond 30 degrees of heel if I had the choice. Not sure why you have a 180% genoa. I like to keep the biggest headsail under 140%. Overlap has fallen out of favor in the last few years. I certainly would not subject a new genoa to that kind of conditions so long as I expected it to retain any of its original shape. You don't do a sail any favor by carrying it way beyond its intended wind range.

6.5 knots hard on the wind? Amazing! That's as fast as my Esprit 37.

But that's the way I sail and it seems you sail a different way. We both have fun.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
