Re: Sails for light winds

The usefulness of a code 0 varies among boats and circumstances, but a Catalina 22 is limited by class rules to a jib, genoa, mainsail and spinnaker, as are many smaller classes. Their goal is to keep racing simple and affordable. That's where they develop the skills to sail more sophisticated boats. The OP should consider whether he'll get his money's worth out of a new $1400 sail, or whether he'd benefit more by learning to maximize the sails he has.
