Re: 135 genoa vs 155 genoa

It really depends on the prevailing conditions in your area. Around here the wind is typically light to moderate,so most masthead boats that are competitive use a full sized genoa as their primary sail. My racing #1 is good up to about 12kts true, as long as I have the meat on the rail to keep the boat flat. I don't suffer any loss in pointing ability when I use it, in fact I can out point most boats in my division.

You won't regret the extra power a #1 gives you in the light stuff!
