Re: Runners and 360 degree penalties

Depends on the mainsail/boom and wind strength. If it's honkin, you need to ease the leeward runner. Otherwise the sail and boom would hit it during the gybe. Breaking battens or wipping out b/c the main is sheeted in too much. Most of these boats (modern ones) have very large main sails.
