Re: Sailing a Cutter

Cutter rigs are fantastic having sailed many miles on a sloop, then a cutter,I find when its windy its far easier to hank a storm jib on an inner forestay than out on the plunging bow.With a furler I think yachts need some kind of inner forestay for the storm sails a mostly furled genoa as a storm sail puts huge strain on the furler and if your furler rope breaks and the sail flys open there is a good chance of loosing your stick.
