NONSUCH 22 - Jibe preventer

Hello all -

I want to rig a jibe preventer on a catboat - a Nonsuch 22. This is not to be used in heavy, potentially risky downwind sailing but in light air, to keep all of that sail (306 square feet) and wishbone from flopping, side to side, etc.

It's a loose-footed sail - no boom, to speak of. A Wichart Gybeasy (a great product) or a vang-thingy won't work.

Give it a think.

Thanks Essemm65
