Please help me to select the right rigging for a Sense 43

Hi!

I am getting a new Beneteau Sense 43. I don't have a lot of experience, just a couple of years sailing with a Beneteau 40 (Oceanis line).

There are several options for the rigging, and I am not experienced enough to know exactly the advantages and disadvantages of each one.

I will be using this boat around the NYC area, Long Island Sound, and occasionally with trips to Provincetown and later to Fr. Lauderdale. I am not into racing, so extreme efficiency is not a priority.

I have a furling mainsail in the 40, and I like it, so I am planning to choose that for the sense. Now for the headsail, I could get a 105 genoa with furling system, or a self-taking blade jib plus a gennaker on a furled forward of the headstay.

I will really appreciate your suggestions.

Thank you very much.

Gus

Congrats on the new boat! I used to sail the same area and it's a great spot.

I'd go with the 105 and as insurance, get the rigging ($1500?) for an Asymmetrical. Which because of your type of sailing, you might find you would very rarely need and even more rarely deploy.

A 105 will be a piece of cake shorthanded and allow great visibility.

FWIW, I really like the idea of the Sense for the kind of waters and sailing you'll be doing.

Thanks for your answer BBC1. May I ask why you wouldn't go with the genbaker/blade combination? Wouldn't be more practical to have both sails available for different wind situations? What do you think is the trade-off if I order both sails? Is the self-taking blade jib something you would avoid?

I am not challenging your post, I am just trying to understand the pros and cons of each rigging.

Thanks again!

Gus
