Re: loose footed main
Switched to a loose footed full battened main from bolt rope in foot a few years ago.
We went from being the back of the pack to actually winning a few races.
Of course our old sail was, well, old and blown out.
The loose footed main allows much better adjustment of the main sail. The draft can easily be lessened by tightening the out haul for high winds or increased for lower wind speeds.
