Re: Crash jibe buffer

I confess in similar circumstances I'd probably get myself more onto a broad reach. Not being one who particularly loves ddw and loathes it on a dead dark night I'd be a nervous wreck using that arrangement.

(otoh, we do have a pretty preventer which is adjustable from the cockpit, an arrangement I'd recommend.)
