2005 Hunter 33. How can I make it sail downwind better?
I think the short answer is...I can't.
Because of the swept back spreaders. I can't let out the main very far.
Even wing and wing, I find there to be a lot of bobbing and back winding of sails.
So let's assume 12 knots of wind. Is the best bet to just move the jib car fully forward to bag out the jib and not even hoist the main?
And let's also assume I am stuck with the stock sails.
