Re: Staysail: Purpose and trimming

I use my staysail generally in higher winds when the large genoa would be overpowering. Frequently I use a single reef in the main in combination with the self-tacking staysail. In lighter winds, I reposition the staysail stay back along a shroud to make tacking the genoa easier; i.e. not getting tangled on the staysail stay.
