If I had to get one new sail, what would it be?
Right now, my sail inventory is pretty sad. I've got a nice 2-season old main, a busted, baggy old main as a spare, and a busted, baggy old 100% jib. That's it.
So, I really need a new hank-on headsail. Well, I need a couple, but I think I can really only justify the expenditure for one. My choices are to replace the jib with a new/newer one, or keep the busted jib in the rotation and get some manner of genoa.
I'm thinking that with the frustratingly light winds we usually have over much of the sailing season here on the Delaware, the genny would be the way to go. I thought something around a 130% would be good and versatile, carrying me into the rare medium winds, and then only switching to the jib when/if things got to blowing good.
Do you guys think this sound like a decent plan?
