Suggestions for light air vs storms
Well done Duane. A couple fine points, in heavier going the jib sheet lead should be moved aft to depower the jib as well. You should also tighten the vang as it keeps the sail depowered as you ease the mainsheet. Also a very minor fne point, tightening the backstay on a fractional rig depowers both sails at once. It tightens the forestay pulling draft out of the jib and moving the camber forward. While mast bend does the same to the mainsail.
