Re: S2 9.2A questions
I agree with most of the earlier comments. Move the traveler down some when it gets windy. I have roller furling, but had a new 125 made to replace the 150 Genoa on my 9.2. We sailed "flat" much of the time on Raritan Bay with the genny rolled up to about 125 or 135 anyway. As you roll it up, it loses its shape. My thought: A 125 still has pretty good shape rolled to 110. We'll see.
I'd love to have a drifter of some sort for lazy days.
My next project his summer is to replace the first reef lines with dyneema to reduce friction. With one reef in the main, and the genoa furled part way, you can sail comfortably and balanced in a blow. I agree that the S2 is not especially tippy and is always dry.
If anyone is interested in my 150 genny, let me know.
