Re: How did your Pacific Seacraft do when the going got rough?

We have a PS34 with the inner forestay and staysail intact. Over the 6 years we've been sailing here in Maine, I've come to appreciate the balance the two foresails create. Our Yankee is 110% which also helps with this balance. The boat is very steady without sinking a rail with winds over 20 knts.

Occasionally, we've sailed with main reefed and only the staysail but the balance is not as sweet.
