Re: downwind sail for PSC31

Thanks for your thoughts about the value of the asymmetric relative to the space it takes. However, the last part of your comments may be more to the reality I'll be facing.

Light wind is less often a problem during the winter months when I'll be down there. Your friends were reefing all the time. 15- 20 knts is the norm. Much of my anticipated sailing will be beam reach. Also since I can easily lash fuel carboys on the deck but must devote valuable interior space to the asymmetric. So, I"m leaning against bringing it. However, I'll continue to think about his.
