As there shown in the pictures with the mainsail being so lose every which way it would never take the boat upwind
I was sailing with a mainsail split completely at the first reef. That was a worn weather main that just let me cruise around on days the wind was gusty.
I have brand new North Sail made sails jib and main. The pictures are a progression- I really hope you all realize this. Look at the dates.
