Re: Using Jib and Genoa at the same time to create spinnaker

I have raced downwind on a boat flying the mainsail and twin gennys on a furler with two slots, in 18-25 kt winds. The boat was extremely stable, with no rolling at all. The second genny increased our boat speed about 3/4 kt. or more. With all three sails flying, the steering angle is narrow. You have to find the angle where the wind can get to all three sails without having one of the gennys blanketed by the mainsail. We tried it with one genny poled out and with both of them flying free, and they worked well both ways.
