I am looking into buying this Gail sail. It sounds like it is a great idea. From the web site:
The Gale sail, since it is hoisted over the very stiff roller furled sail, has a great aerodynamic shape, much better than a conventional storm jib hooked on a removable headstay, or a partially furled sail, which most of the time has not been designed or built for that purpose. Also, not all roller furlers are built to reef.
It eliminates the need for a removable headstay.
It eliminates the dangerous job of unfurling, dropping and stowing away the furled working sail to free up the roller furler in windy conditions to hoist the conventional jib.
Being that I single hand more times then not I thought it be a safer sail to carry. Here is the website and has anyone used this sail ?
I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.
