Re: 110 vs. 135 Headsails

I carry a 100, 135 and a 160. I far prefer to change the jib vs furling it. My view is that sail shape and (on my boat anyway) performance is noticeably better with a smaller sail vs a furled sail.

I will furl only when I get caught by surprise, otherwise I will swap out the jib as appropriate.
