Re: Wing on Wing

On the Chesapeake where I do a lot of sailing the wind often is either northerly or southerly so going up or down the Bay is either a beat or near DDW. I don't have a gennaker or spin but invested in a whisker pole a 2 or 3 years ago and use it a lot; it really helps. I have the main slightly to leeward to lessen the accidental gybe chances (use a boom brake also) and the pole keeps the genoa which is slightly winward from backing....a true light air sail in my future??? Hope so.
