You can do an inside peel or an outside peel. A larger chute is usually set outside and a smaller chute is set inside.

That's a pretty advanced sail change with the big issue having enough hardware to be able to control the extra set of sheets and guys during the time your flying two

A lot has changed over the years as way back we would pop open the shackel from the pole and pull it in the companion way and now we bring in the whole thing on the bow with everything hooked up and take it in the bow hatch

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Almost impossible to hoist a new chute outside the flying one. It will drag all the way up and take forever. Run the pole forward to the headstay. That will blanket the chute some w/ the main and take some pressure off. Hoist on the inside w/ changing gear. New chute blankets old chute. Blow the guy and change gear over. Old chute drops to deck blanketed by new. Wouldn't suggest attempting it w/o a full experianced crew. Tons of fun when done in the heat of battle. Want to make it real fun. keep the pole back and hoist the bowman to the end of the pole to do the change. I had the pleasure years ago of being the bowman on a boat that did this often. Hanging in a climbing harness out over the water doing 15 kts on a run was a rush. Looking back I think I was nuts but we had fun.
