C&C 30 MKII Questions?

What do ya'll keep on your roller furling?
The boat came with a 110% with sunbrella covering. Looks like that is what the PO used for his working jib.

At first I thought it was a bit small, but the main is much larger than my last boat (30MKI) and it's lighter and not so stiff.

15 - 20 knots with a full main and the 110 seemed about as much as the boat wanted. However, I'm still experimenting.

Should it have more of an overlap and/or will I just have to reef earlier if I do.

Just day sailing and weekend cruising right now.

Thanks,

Rob

Rob,
CCheck out cncphotoalbum.com.
I've got a C&C 35 mk 3 with a 135. 18 knots apparent seems to be the limit upwind before I reef. These boats don't do well if they are overpowered.

Re: C&C 30 MKII Questions?

I don't "keep" anything on my furler at all.
I have 4 headsails. 90,110,135,150. I decide which sail is best for the conditions of the day and I rig that sail. If I have to change headsails while sailing, I have a dual groove foil and two genoa halyards.
The conditions around here change so much that it's not worth leaving anything on the furler, although almost everyone does.
Reefing the main before I reef the headsail keeps a better balance on the helm.

Re: C&C 30 MKII Questions?

Hi Rob,
I keep a 140 on my furler, on the 30 Mk II I'm good till about 12 knots true with it. I have a 125 thats good for 12 to 16 knots, after that its time to reef. I sold a 110 a few years back, is yours a Neil Pryde performance cruise?

Re: C&C 30 MKII Questions?

Drumroll, I forgot to see if I could find the sail makers name, in fact I forgot about this thread.

I sailed the rest of the season with the 110. Conditions vary greatly where I sail, often hourly. It's New England weather and there are lots of land masses to boot (Fisher's Isl. Sound).

The boat sails well, but, compared to my old 30 MKI, it easily becomes over powered. Reefing often is something I'm going to have to get used to.

Since doing lots of head sail changes is not an option, I'm going to start the season with the 110 and change to the 135 as it gets warmer.

The good news is that reefing the main on this boat is dead easy and it shapes nicely. Double line reefing led to the cockpit on the first reef and single line reefing on the second reef, also led to the cockpit.

Re: C&C 30 MKII Questions?

Hey Rob, With your 30MK1, did you use the 115% in 7 to 10? It seams to work the best on the my 30 mk1. I have all hank on head sails. I have a 115, 135,150, and one larger not sure on that one but its too big for me to use right now. I thought it was a Genaker but the hanks on it will not let me use it that way? anyway just was wondering if the most used headsail is your 115% it works the best on mine.
Cheers and mary christmas.

Yes - light winds

UK Halsey has some information.

Drifter Sails - UK-Halsey's Encyclopedia of Sails

As does Carol Hasse, the Queen of cruising sails

You might consider rigging the sheet outside of the lifeline to block on the toerail to prevent chafe.
