Re: Wing on Wing
I have flown a gennaker wing on wing with no pole.
The pole can help
You might want to use a preventer, rigged from the boom end to the foredeck and back.
Watch the wind carefully.
If the boat starts to wallow just hold the wheel and wait for it to settle down. Trying to counteract the wallow can exacerbate it.
Gybing the main is a little easier than gybing the foresail.
Get onto a starboard tack (main to port) to maintain some stand-on privileges.
