OPTION is on a distinguished road
Staysail

Do any of you have experience using a Spinnaker Staysail? My Soverel 36, OPTION, has and is rigged for one and I am wondering if her performance can be improved by using it.

I am unfamiliar with the Staysail but would use it if I knew how if it would improve performance.

Right now, OPTION has both symmetrical and asymmetrical spinnakers. So, when considering using the Staysail, is it usable with both symmetrical and asymmetrical spinnakers? And, if so, does it improve performance?

Finally, if the Staysail is an improvement, where - when the Spring arrives -can I get someone to teach my crew and I to use it?
