Re: stopping on a dime
Yes, you need to prepare first, in Scandinavia you will find that self-tacking jib is used on more boats than just Hanse.
I have permanently rigged barber/inner/outer haulers on my self-tacking jib.
The way mine are rigged they have several uses.
That is very cool. Thanks so much for that.
