Re: Jib & Genoa Roller Furling
A good dual slot foil is absolutely the 'fastest' way to change a headsail.. you are never without a headsail during a change, and if you contrive to tack mid change you lose very little speed and you're not fighting/working the outside groove at any time.
However a furler will not allow this unless you disable the furling and leave the swivel down low, as previously mentioned...
