Re: Dousing a cruising asym without blowing the tack?

Marty: I understand the theory and it makes sense to me. I was asking how you have your pole rigged?

My assumption is that you need the following:
* topping lift
* downhaul
* two after guys (one port, one starboard)
* two sheets

Is that correct?
