Alright, since I am ignorant, what is the best sail configuration to get the max drive into a headwind for a W32, please?
I'm rereading Aldred Cole's book Heavy Weather Sailing and some are suggesting a storm jib provides more drive to weather, least in a storm, than a mains'l. Wow, that's news to me. Anyone share that opinion?
