Giulietta ahhh.....but when it arrives..I will be having the joy of life again...this time...I will give it love and care.....till the next time

By the way..if it was the mast..check this out...2 months waiting time for a performance mast now.... PLUS waiting for groupped transport, by ship only!!!!!!!!!

So I was lucky

Still...I can sail with the genoa only and still have fun...kinda like sailing a laser!!!

That's what you said last week... and yet, still, you're boomless. No boom... nope, none... nada, zip, zilch... you'd have to sail on just the Genoa...

Ya, but anyone who's raced knows that the base of the 'race pyramid' starts with boat prep, in which case Giu has us beat before it even starts.

sailingdog It is true... one sailboat alone is sailing, two sailboats together are a race.. whether they want to or not... it is just the nature of sailors to see who can go faster... However, I'd like to add that going fast on a sailboat takes skill and knowledge, versus those who do so on a power boat, which merely takes a lead wrist and large wallet.

Just in case somebody comes around the corner

Higher than what? I guess is one answer. I carry a storm sail on a movable babystay. I guess the genoa CP at the same area furled may be a little higher, but also further forward.

SD- I like the GaleSaile idea, I don't like the idea of rigging it in a gale.
I don't like rigging my storm sail either, but I'm not on the bow and I can tether out of range of falling in the sea. I can pre-rig the storm sail on the baby stay with sail ties and release it and hoist when necessary. When I furl the genoa in a storm, I pull in a few extra turns to wrap the sheets around it and down near the deck. That way it's fairly trussed up and the sheets are running lower too.
