question on sails


Many moons ago, I owned an O''day 23 which hardly qualifies me as an expert to answer your question but here goes anyway. I would guess that you would want the smaller head sail (jib, normally 100% of the fore triangle) for the beginning and end of the season when the winds are normally the strongest and a larger sail 135-150% for the summer months when the winds are traditionally lighter, of course depending on where you plan to sail. Now go take a long walk off a short pier!
