Any idea why?
Hi Jackdale,

Very Interesting. Looking at his video again it appears that all he had up was the orange storm jib... Maybe that's all he needed under those conditions?

I really don't know.. Maybe he didn't have the trysail itself aboard, or maybe they were too busy with other stuff to get the trysail out... Maybe the weather got so bad before they realized that they might prefer to use it..

When I crewed on Bella Luna from Georgia to Saint Martin we didn't have a trysail on deck ready to deploy, and don't remember seeing one onboard..

You might ask captain AJ on his youtube channel, and/or I will ask him when I next speak with him..

Thanks! Happy sailing,
