Re: downwind sail for PSC31
Just weighing in: My PSC came with a beautiful assym spinaker. I have gradually learned to use it in various conditions and absolutely love it! There are other options for downwind/light wind sailing but with a sock, the AS is such a nice solution--and so much prettier than white sails. Yes, it is a fairly large bag stored down below but it is so light and compressible that it doesn't bother me a bit (it is wonderfully soft to sleep on up on the foredeck!). I remember I once left on a cruise and thought the AS was on board but it was not--I was very unhappy and vowed to never leave port without it again. (All that said, next chance I get I want to experiment with double headsails.

The secret to sailing is good judgment. Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.
