Re: Maximizing efficiency under sail

From what I can tell Florida to the Turks is more or less into the wind where the jib and main sail will be effective, and then with the wind at our backs for remainder. I've ruled out a symmetrical spinnaker because of the reasons you've listed above, and was thinking an asymmetrical, something like a 2A would be appropriate for our trip, especially the second half. Do you know where I can get a good, comprehensive list of asymmetrical sails?
