Re: NONSUCH 22 - Jibe preventer

Oh, if your not talking about downwind sailing but more drifting or motorsailing in light air. I use a pretty simple setup to control the wishbone. Bring the sheet in fairly snug and run a line attached with a snap shackle to the end of the wishbone.(snap shackle so you can release it quick) use this line to pull the bone over the quarter and Fix it to one of the aft quarter cleats. Use a line with some stretch like a three strand. I also do this when motoring it really helps with that BIG scary piece of aluminum swinging above your head.
