Re: First Asym Try
I appreciate your feelings, but there is a reason every single short handed, off shore race boat uses top down furlers. From the Open 60's to the MOD's they are universal. Even the crewed big boats have started switching to furlers, because the ease of sail handling makes putting the sails up safer and faster.
They really aren't experimental anymore, and with a market penetration of 100% in big boat short hand racing, and about the same in big boat crewed racing, it may be worth looking into them again.
