Our current boat was raced by a little old lady who had sailed for many years. She retired from sailing in her low 80's and sold the boat to the people we bought it from.
The assymeterical spinnaker that came with the boat is huge. We have talked about buying something a little more managable as we do not officially race, nor do we have the first owner's 60+ years sailing experience. If we had a smaller asym we would fly it more often and in higher winds. Plus then maybe I could fly it some while singlehanding.
It's better to have your enemies inside your tent pissing out than outside your tent pissing in...
