Exactly. Wing and wing downwind. Sometimes using the two foresails.

A broad reach turns out to be a challenging position for us because of the way our massive main blankets the foresails. I find it hard to maintain much foresail, especially in a rolly sea, on a broad reach.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
