Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Dear Mark
Yes, in those waves and with current and wind against you, I would certainly also have a slog. No wonder that the police called you ;-). Anyway, this was very nice of them.
Only way out is a slender, high pointing boat going through the waves - and you would be soaked for hours. Unfortunately, we cannot have both (at the price).
Yes, the full batten mainsail is certainly an advantage. Go for that the next time. Even though the mainsail is smaller than the genoa, I believe it plays a major role for speed and pointing, because of the channel effect.
