self-tacking jib

You don''t say where you sail, but with a C&C 24 unless you''ve got a good 25knots of breeze on a regular basis, you''re likely to need all the sail area forward you can get. A smaller jib would make tacking easier, but a self-tacking sail would of necessity be so much smaller that it could be really frustrating to try to get anywhere in most U.S sailling venues, where light air is the norm.
