The 140 sounds like a better number to use vs the 70-80 I am remembering someone mentioning in a skipper meeting last Jan. I was going to check with the fleet captan to verify that max measurement for the fleet races.
I figured otherwise, it was an anything goes. The 10-18 seemed a bit big, where as the 8-14 seemed a bit more appropriate to my thinking. A 9-16 would be best! ie 140% of 11.5 = 16.1.
Then assuming that the 140 is based on a 150-155, a smaller headsail, one would want to be say 10'ish % smaller pole, so my 110 would be about 11'...... and the 16' would work for my 80% of max AS sail availible too.
Thinking on this, I may remembering 70-80% of the overall LP too, which would be about 140% of J on a 150-155 LP genoa too! It could be one of those I am not remembering ALL of the facts correctly.
Thanks for replys.
