Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Open ocean spinnaker flying at night can be done with 2 people on watch if the weather isn't too bad. Once you get to the point of needing sheet in and main in and sheet out and main out 4 is minimal and steering more than one hour very tough. We have - with a crew of 6 good people - switched to the genoa at night so two people could handle jibes and everyone else could get some rest.
