If there is going to be a 20 knot day I typically know about it beforehand and do the sail change in my slip.

The prefeeder makes doing sail changes in the slip a lot easier. I can mostly concentrate on the halyard, and stand near the luff foil just in case I need to help it along.

Keeping the luff slot clean and lubed helps as well.

Hmm, for me, as an inveterate tinkerer, such a requirement is a GOOD thing! <g>

I read your blog and came to much the same conclusion as you as to choice of sails, right down to number 5. I also fly my symmetric spinnaker asymmetrically using the ATN device and a (home made version of the ATN) sock to get it up and down. Works much better than expected. I'll probably spring for a real assym one day, but I currently feel no real urge to do so.
Lol, that would be the number one reason to shy away for me!

Interesting on sails. I also feel no need to get a real asym. Maybe if I won the lottery or summin
