Re: Flying the Gennaker

I found it easier to learn how to fly our gennaker by doing it with no other sails (we launched it while the motor was running, then killed the motor). Then we mixed in the main. We've never run it with the genoa at the same time since the boat doesn't have enough cockpit winches.
