Re: Riding Sail

Very interesting. It looks like your riding sail is fairly effective in dampening the swing. I've thought about rigging one, but never came up with a good plan. Can you give any more information about its construction and deployment? How is attached to the back stay? Does the foot run parallel with the deck? What material did you use for the sail cloth? What would you do to improve it?

When I anchor in 20 knots, I swing all over the place.
