Re: Seeking recommendation for light air Sail

seem that you already have the sail you are looking for. try the 170. if not a gennaker is a good sail for a cruising boat. a code 0 is a bit much to handle unless it is on a furler. they are designed to be used on a race boat that is rated for a fractional jib to be called a spinnaker for rules sake but can go up wind. they have a very limited points of sail and are not good for a beam or wider reach. a beam or wider you should be using an Asymmetrical spinnaker. or gennaker code 0 sails are very expensive $ 3500 to 4000 for your boat. a code 0 sail that is cut higher at the clew and fuller is not a code 0 it is a gennaker made out of expensive code cloth. a true code 0 is a upwind sail for very light winds under 7 knots.
