Sailing dinghy w/o headsail
For those that might not be aware, most dinghies ( like my FJ) have a wire luff in the headsail that functions as the forestay when the sail is raised. Anyone have any thoughts what I should use in its place if I want to sail with just mainsail alone? Was thinking 3/16" dyneema. One cannot just depend on the forestay, as you can't really get it tight enough, and I don't want to wrap the headsail around its luff wire (messy).
