Re: Full vs partial battened main
I have a Rolly Tasker jib. No regrets at all. I had two mains and inherited a third. One had partial battens, the others have full. A full battened sail will last longer becuase it doesn't flog as much. The batten pockets and sail slides are more important on a fully battened sail. My lazy jacks are not a big issue. Just release the mainsheet and keep an eye aloft.
